At the heart of the manufacture, historical displays unfold around a brilliantly lit atrium, including a unique chandelier of 120-light chandelier. The stunning architecture showcases 2,000 exceptional works encapsulating the history of Saint-Louis, in perpetual dialogue with the living skills that have been practiced here for centuries. A window offers a bird’s-eye view of the timeless choreography of artisans at work. Known as ‘La Grande Place’, the skilled team creates prestige objects in Saint-Louis crystal on the manufacture floor. The museum is named in their honour.

LA GRANDE PLACE : The Saint-Louis crystal museum

Parking facing the Grande Place, Musée du Cristal Saint-Louis
*Upon presentation of supporting documents: ID card (6-18 years), studend card, disability card.

Guided visits of the manufacture start at La Grande Place and allow visitors to watch the artisans – classed as living national treasures or Meilleurs Ouvriers de France – at close quarters. Visitors enter the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ floors to observe glassmakers working the molten crystal, and the cutters, engravers and decorators who embellish the finished pieces. The tour includes the chandelier and paperweight workshops (Saint-Louis is the only contemporary paperweight-maker, with two collections each year). The workshop tours are offered jointly with unaccompanied museum visits.
