Reviewed 12 August 2014

I was quite frankly surprised at how good this new museum was. Its situated in a quite village , were lalique used to live/work.

there are so many beautiful pieces of work on display, you can see how talented he was.

there is also a café on side where the food is very good.

“Excellent and Well Run Museum in a Tranquil Spot”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Beautiful museum tucked away in the Northern Vosges dedicated to the surprisingly influential Rene Lalique and his family business.

I'd heard of Lalique's jewellery design before but was completely unaware of his glasswork -- and the fact that he pioneered the branded perfume bottle -- therefore being one of the pioneers of modern marketing.

The exhibits in the museum are astoundingly beautifully crafted and the layout of the building is accordingly tasteful and impressive -- with most captions in French, German and English. There are some fascinating video presentations towards the end showing how this ornate glass and crystal work is still produced in the company's factory.

The shop sells some marvellous gifts, handmade in the factory. A lovely museum in a very peaceful spot -- well worth the drive to get there.

“Worth a detour”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Wingen-sur-Moder is not really on the way to any tourist destination - exception of course Strasbourg, But it is worthwhile to go. The Musee Lalique (Museum of the founder of the glass and cristal production René Lalique) is a beauty not to be missed. Even people that are not interested in glass should have a look: Art Nouveau jewellery at its finest (that's how René started), glass perfume "flacons" for all big brands, from 1920s to nowadays, vases, lamps, table ware in all rainbow colours, and always: nature, the female, flowers, twigs, birds and fish. Personnel is extremely nice and: You are allowed to take pictures (without flash). That should be an example for all museums! The entrance is moderate, with special family cards available!

“Absolutely wonderful ... not to be missed!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We came across this Museum by accident when we saw it mentioned on a road sign and decided to make a visit. About 40 minutes later, following a long diversion for road works, we arrived. It was well worth the journey! The permanent exhibition was excellent and the temporary exhibition (the Aquatic World of Lalique) was, if anything, even better. We saw some of the most beautiful pieces of jewellery and glassware that we have only seen in photographs before. The information boards, interactive screens and films of the manufacturing process were comprehensive and added considerably to the experience. This is one of the best museums we have been to in many years. Wingen-sur-Moder is somewhat off the beaten track but we will certainly try and return one day. (The cafe next door is also worth a visit.)

“A must !!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We took a two hour drive into the country to visit this Musee…and we were beyond thrilled that we arrived to visit this magnificent creation displaying Rene Lalique and his family's creations. Absolutely adventure to here to enjoy not only the beauty of the grounds and the building itself but Mr. Lalique's beautiful artistic creations.
