International Centre for Glass Art

" Look down from the mezzanine and admire the glass blowers in action during a behind-the-scenes immersion in glassmaking. Also discover temporary exhibitions and a gift shop with glass objects "Made in Meisenthal". "

Visited by over 60,000 people a year, the Meisenthal Glassworks Site is run by three partner organisations (Glass museum, Centre International d'Art Verrier and Halle Verrière), which combine heritage with contemporary creative disciplines (design, contemporary art, contemporary music, street theatre...).

The Glass museum gives visitors a glimpse of local glassmaking history. The audio-visual projection is complemented by a guided tour of the "salle des techniques" and the sumptuous collection of Art Nouveau glass (including some exceptional pieces by Émile GALLÉ).

The Centre International d'Art Verrier is a workshop that works to preserve traditional glassmaking skills and promote contemporary creation. You can watch the ballet of glassblowers as they comment on their work. There are also temporary exhibitions and a shop selling "Made in Meisenthal" glassware.

The Halle Verrière is a 3,200 m² industrial cathedral, renovated in 2005. It hosts exhibitions by contemporary artists, contemporary music concerts and street theatre festivals.
