We enjoyed visiting this museum. The collection of art works is not large, but encompasses a wide range of centuries; we were particularly keen to see the several works by Georges de la Tour and his followers, which are nicely displayed. An interesting counterpoint is...More

there is plenty of interesting material here, although it is not easy to grasp a basic history of the region because the exhibits are all shown thematically and not chronologically; we were lucky that when we went there was a fulsome exhibition about the political...More

I loved this museum. It was in a lovely spot w/ garden. There was a special exhibition, which I really enjoyed. The regular collection has three De la Tour paintings. I was able to enjoy it with little French.

Good historical review of the Lorraine. Museum has a very helpful and knowledgeable staff who were generous with their time. Don't forget to take a look around the inner courtyard and look up at the gargoyles.
