  • The art here is not of the first order but nice for a provincial museum, with some good Art Nouveau glassware, and very nice pictures by Friand.

  • Fabulous!!!! Needed much more than 1-2 hours recommended by guide book. It’s bigger than it looks and so much to see. Daum Glass has an exhibit.

  • A very descent collection for a local art museum. There are definitely some problems with the lightning as sometimes I needed time to find a good spot to see all the details without reflects. Anyway, if you want a quiet hour for inspiration without being overwhelmed, that’s the place to be in Nancy. Also there is a painting by Lucian Freud!
  • We were fortunate enough to visit on a Sunday where the entrance was free. We really enjoyed looking at the art, from the more modern to medieval style. The room with all the mirrors and lighter was mesmerizing!
  • Two stars for the works of art however three less for unprofessional staff. Today I witnessed a man touch a painting with his finger on the second floor and when I reported it to staff in the lobby I was verbally accosted and threatened by security staff. What an odd snd unjust reaction! One short man lounging on the side came an inch from and angrily barked: “you’re telling me I’m now doing my job?!!” Huh? What? What is this strange man on about? The other staff (two women and a older skinny man) said nothing while this little hot head escalated things. And then came the act of class and professionalism from other security staff: two Old men came and jumped to conclusions and verbally assaulted me. The larger of the two bumped into me and told me To get out. The ignorance and lack of professionalism from staff here is palpable. I suppose it must be extremely difficult to find professionally trained security staff in France that one must hire from the bottom of barrel. This is a ticking time bomb , especially if management wants to ensure guests feel safe and works of art are secured! Will someone get shot by security for reporting a fire?
  • Lovely place to wonder for a few hours. The glass exhibition in the basement was beautiful and unexpected.
  • Love the artwork! So many beautiful paintings however the staff here were so rude, lazy and unprofessional! I saw security staff checking their phones rather than doing their job and when my friend reported someone touching a painting security staff attacked him instead of doing anything about the problem! Wow! This gives a very poor impression and a very poor experience to us visitors!
