Situated on the 18th century glassmaking site where Lalique first started his now celebrated work, the Musée Lalique will trace the history of glassmaking, as well as display nearly 600 pieces designed by him.
This 900-square-metre space will include a permanent exhibition showcasing never-before seen vases and jewellery, many of which were created during the Art Nouveau period between 1890 and 1905.
Some of Lalique’s more famous works will also be exhibited, such as his Art Deco glass designs, perfume bottles and statues.
A separate temporary exhibition space will display a variety of other glass pieces, updated once or twice a year.
A guided tour will also be available for groups to explore the site and uncover the history of glassmaking in the area.
Reduced entry rates are available for groups of 15 or more.
