Fodor's Review

Built in the 13th century, completely restored in the 15th century and again after a fire at the end of the 19th century, this palace originally housed the Dukes of Lorraine. Now it is home to the Musée Lorrain. A major renovation project means the museum is closed to the public until 2018; however, you can still admire the palace’s stunning architecture from the outside. One wing is a spectacular example of Flamboyant Gothic.
