I discovered a brochure for this museum by chance in the tourist office in Strasbourg. As I had seen pictures of the beautiful jewellery by Lalique before, I immediately decided to go.
What to expect from this museum:
René Lalique designed beautiful jewellery, perfume bottles and glass ware in art nouveau and art déco style. The museum gives an overview about his work and techniques for working with glass.
The main focus is on his work with glass/crystal. If you are mainly interested in his jewellery, be aware that this is only covered by a small part of the museum.

The entrance fee was 6€ for adults. The ticket offers the possiblity to visit other museums in the region for reduced entrance fees. These vouchers are unlimited, so you are not in a rush to use them.

The museum was built in 2011. It is very nicely integrated in the landscape and state of art.

They offer a visio-guide for 2€ which is basically an iPod with a lot of information which is very well explained. I recommend investing these 2€ - I am not sure if you will get so much out of it without the guide. They have a lot of extra material which is not available in the exhibition. You can choose between different languages too - I don't remember which ones other than French (obviously), English and German. If you take the guide and listen to everything and look closely at the exhibits, it will take you definitely more than 1 hr.

When should you visit this museum?

If you are interested in art nouveau/art deco
If you are interested in crystal ware

I personally really liked the museum. I didn't know that Lalique made so many other things than jewellery. Even if I generally don't have such a big interest in crystal ware or art déco, I found this museum really interesting.

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.

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!

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.

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.
