Reviewed 19 April 2014

This magnificent collection of works by Rene Lalique and his glass artists, in situated in a village where he had a factory. Much of his raw material was from the area, and many glass workers were from this region. The exhibits are beautifully displayed in a modern setting.

“Hidden treasure - highly recommended!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The Musée Lalique is a hidden treasure well worth a visit. It is about a 1 ½ hour drive from Nancy, located in a little village in the Alsace region. The museum has a wonderful collection of Rene Lalique jewelry and glass, all very well-presented in spacious dark rooms with wonderful lighting emphasizing the collection. Video screens showing the glass casting process are interesting.

The museum shop offers a wonderful selection of perfumes, decorative art, jewelry, cards and books—I could’ve spent a fortune there! Next to the museum is a little tea house, nice place to have a drink and a little snack after visiting the museum.

This museum isn’t well-known at all, but it should be. It’s a bit out of the way, but certainly worth a visit, especially if you admire the exquisite craftsmanship and design of the Art Deco and Art Nouveau era by one of the best glass and jewelry artists of that period. Highly recommended!

“Beautiful glass objects”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

This museum is all about the famous glass designer Lalique and his family. You follow his developpment as a designer, from being unknown to being world famous for his perfume bottles. The exhibition also tells you about the art of glass making. You see jewelery, vases, glasses and of course perfume bottles. I personally liked the medals made for the 1992 winter Olympics best. All the important Information is also available in English and German. We had a private tour through the museum with a very nice and clearly knowledgeable guide. There is also a room with temporary exhibitions. In the gift shop you'll find a wide selection of (expensive) presents and souvenirs, but also some very nice books for smaller children, though the museum itself is probably more interesting for older children.
The museum is wheelchair accessible with ramps and wheelchair bathrooms.

“Museum for the master of Art Nouveau glass and enamel jewelry”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Wonderful museum in the Alsace, devoted to the works of Lalique, designer of Art Nouveau brooches, hangers and ear-decorations. Later he only designed glass objects, some of these are still produced today, in the glass workshops next to the museum.
Also an amazone collection of perfume bottles design by him.
A great place to visit if you are in this regio in France.

“Interesting museum, worth a visit if you're in the area”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

This was a very interesting museum to visit. It was modern, air-conditioned. It's not too large but I would recommend a visit. The only draw-back was that it would have been useful to have an English audio-guide as I unfortunately I don't speak French but there were notices about the works and history in English.
