The museum is located in the Vosges du Nord Regional Park, on the original site of Saint-Louis, the first crystal factory in France and continental Europe. Located in the heart of the factory, the museum takes visitors on a historical tour around the central well, enhanced by lighting fixtures, including a unique work of art with 120 lights. 2,000 exceptional creations from the Saint-Louis heritage are on display in this architectural setting, in constant dialogue with the craftsmen, demonstrating the liveliness of centuries-old know-how, visible through a window overlooking the ballet of the glassmakers of the team known as "la grande place", who shape the prestigious pieces of Saint-Louis. The museum's name, "La Grande Place", pays tribute to them.


Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 6pm (closed on 25 December and 1 January)
