This is more like a showroom than a museum. Beautiful table settings and a small display of crystal glassware. But the restaurant is most likely the highlight of this place. Go dine in it!

A somewhat off-beat museum featuring Baccarat crystal and information on how the products are made. Interesting, but especially if this is something in your wheel house. In a very fancy neighborhood, not surprising.

The Baccarat Crystal museum is tiny, but there are so many beautiful pieces in the museum, but don't bring children. We had the pleasure of talking and working with Francisco who was friendly, very knowledgeable, interesting and such fun. We loved our time there. Thank...More

Located off the beaten tourist track in a lovely building. The museum itself is extremely small and feels more like an appendage to the boutique which displays a large array of the magnificent and extremely expensive crystalware of Baccarat. It seems unjustified charging admission to...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
