For the first time in France, an exhibition retraces the history of Murano glass-work, in the course of seven centuries of intense creativity, from the mid-15th century to nowadays. The exhibit starts with contemporary pieces which we absolutely loved. The exhibit aims at highlighting the precious know-how, unique quality and splendour of glass-work produced in the Murano ateliers. It features about 200 pieces from both public and private collections.
The musée Maillol is located in the 7th district about 20 minutes walking distance from our boutique hotels Villa d'Estrées and Residence des Arts.
You can download an app from Itunes that guides you through the expo.
