This item appears on page 16 of the May 2020 issue.

In Nancy, France, after years of restoration to match its original state, the Villa Majorelle (36-38, rue du Sergent Blandan; phone +33 03 83 85 30 01, [in French only]) opened to the public as a historic monument on Feb. 19. Built in 1901-02, the Art Nouveau home was designed by architect Henri Sauvage for furniture designer Louis Marjorelle.

Restoration included removing exterior elements added after the original construction and, inside, adding furniture and decorations to match those in photos taken by the first occupants.

The museum’s hours are 2-6 p.m., Wed.-Sun. Tickets can be booked in advance online. 6 (near $6.50).
