In the Glass Museum visit “L’Envers du décor”, an exhibition that reveals all the secrets of traditional glassmaking techniques as well as presenting an outstanding collection of Art Nouveau pieces, including some gems by Émile Gallé, who worked at Meisenthal from 1867 to 1894.
At the Centre International d’Art Verrier (International Centre for Glass Art), go up the mezzanine overlooking the workshop to watch the ballet of glassblowers, who explain their work as they go along. In the run-up to Christmas, see them making thousands of the famous Christmas glass balls – it’s a fascinating sight!
This vast space is a centre for cultural creativity and dissemination offering a varied programme of cultural events all year round (contemporary art exhibitions, modern music, street arts, etc.) for every type of audience.
