Descriptif

The House of Glass and Crystal represents the evolution of this art giving its noble name to Pays de Bitche.

A symbol: This house was the original glass hall where Emile Gallé, head of the School of Arts at Nancy, started working with glass, making Meisenthal the cradle of Art Nouveau glass.

Today, the museum is in memory of the local glass industry. After an audio-visual show, the guided visit shows you the techniques used in the ‘technical room’, followed by a visit to a sumptuous collection of Art Nouveau glass, notably masterpieces signed by Emile Gallé but also other masterpieces created by other famous glassmakers such as Desiré Christian and Eugene Kremer.

An amazing moment awaits you in front of these splendid exhibits, most of which were created in the region.

International Centre of Glass Craft 

At Meisenthal, in an old glass factory, young artists from all corners of the world come to exercise their talent. While watching them, you will discover the fascinating job of the glassblowers and beyond…
