Baccarat Museum


All over the world, Baccarat rhymes with excellence. That of the glass artists of this city in Lorraine, which hosts an eponymous museum, which bears witness to more than 250 years of crystal history. Completely renovated in 2015, the Baccarat Museum stands at the heart of the "Ch√Ęteau", the former residence of the firm's directors.

A fully renovated exhibition area within the manufacturing premises, from which visitors can hear the constant roar of the firing ovens in the building just opposite. Designed to represent the home of a collector, the museum is a reflection of Baccarat's legendary past. In a refined scenography highlighting the virtuosity of the craftsmen of crystal, visitors discover a selection of iconic pieces forming part of Baccarat's heritage. Among the masterpieces on display are the ewer presented to Charles X, the first king to visit the premises in 1828, the Czarina's candelabra with 24 candles, and the "Three Graces" vase presented at the International Exhibition of Eastern France, held in Nancy in 1909.
