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.

Wide range of exhibits but particularly good on everyday utensils. Lovely buildings covering quite a period of history.

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.

Displays vary in this museum from very good to awful. I would put it last on the list of what to do in Nancy.
