  • The route in the museum starts at the 2th floor with heavy religious paintings. Following a time line down the the main floor where more modern paintings can be found. We especially appreciated this.....  more »
  • The museum is located on the famous place Stanislas. It has permanent exhibition and temporary ones as a free entrance first weekend of the month.  more »
  • Great mix of Flemish medieval masters and super works like the ones from Friant. Everyone can find their taste here. Amazing incorporation of the old city defence foundations in the new wing. This greatly enhances the Daum collection
  • Nice collection of 19th & 20th century painters on the ground floor. The first floor is uneventful. The Daum collection of glasswork downstairs is informative.
