    Enter the vast glass vessel on the Moselle Island and contemplate its works of art. You will dream in the Gallo-Roman pantheon full of hybrid creatures; you will gaze at the classical landscapes and guess when the painter captured the light; you will be intrigued by the contemporary works.

    On the occasion of the 25th birthday of its renovation, the regional museum created a new permanent exhibition for its collections “Beaux-Arts” (fine arts). This large-scale intervention deeply changes the visit. It allows the visitors to admire nearly 200 works progressing from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. The surface is now 900 m², i.e. twice the size of the surface since the museum reopened in 1992. This new presentation underlines the tremendous richness of the fine arts collection, from its paintings, to its sculptures or even its craft objects. The works of major artists like Rembrandt, de La Tour, van Goyen, Pannini, Claude Gellée, Furini, Vlaminck, etc. are shown. Finally, more than 110 works are now brought to light for the public after being hidden in storage for years for important restorations. These will be nice surprises, even for regular visitors.

    The mediation has been renewed for the occasion, allowing everyone to appropriate the works through different devices.
    Supervised guided tours are available for groups on reservation.
    Audio guides are also available (French, English and German) to guide you through the discovery of the museum.

    Closed on Tuesdays and Sunday mornings as well as on the 1st of May and 1st of November. Wednesday: By reservation for groups
