If you are in any way interested not only in medieval stained glass but also modern art, this is the place. Nice historical timeline of stained glass techniques. Some of the modern stained glasswork is also amazing

The stained glass was beautiful. I loved the historical section but down in the crypt, where the new work is was so much fun and amazing. Very inspiring and beautiful. Worth the visit.

Very well organised museum; recommend taking a tour of the Cathederal first. Above average price and the staff seemed pre-occupied chatting to friends and other staff.

We were lucky enough to visit during an exhibition of modern works by international glass artists which was just fabulous. The receptionist and teacher in the school workshops were very friendly and made our visit most enjoyable - Merci a vous !

Wonderful display of Stain Glass window from all periods. A special bonus is the studio where cutting the colored glass is being cut.

Equally important as seeing the cathedral, the nearby center offers a great insight into the medieval culture and glass arts. We were impressed by an expedition featuring "light" & modern stain glass artist.

A shop with old and new stained glass in all sizes. Craft making materials available. Some very traditional work but others with much whimsy.

Located in a beautifully restored huge grain store this centre for stained glass was really intestering to visit. The building itself is amazing, the interpretation and display of religious stained glass very informative but the best part was the basement displays of contemporary stained glass...More
