The Musée Baccarat is a private museum of Baccarat crystal located in the 16th arrondissement at 11, place des États-Unis, Paris, France. It is open daily except Sundays, Tuesdays, and holidays; an admission fee is charged.

The museum has been created in the former mansion of Marie-Laure de Noailles, with decor by Philippe Starck. It contains a number of major works produced by Baccarat for world fairs and universal expositions of the 1800s, and for celebrities. Major exhibits are as follows:

  • Alchemy room by Gérard Garouste - a rotunda with pieces including the Simon vases and a chessboard.
  • Beyond transparency - four display cases: "Tales from Afar", "Designers", "Celebrities", and "Femininity and Lightness", illustrating glass-cutting, wheel-engraving, enameling, and gilding. Pieces of particular interest include the Turkish enameled mocha coffee set (1878 Exhibition), and the Elephant vase (1880).

The museum contains displays of fine glass work, including vases, dishes and stemware; limited-edition collections created by noted designers Georges Chevalier, Ettore Sottsass, Roberto Sambonet, Van day Truex, and Marcial Berro; and pieces commissioned for heads of state, royal and imperial courts, and celebrities including the Emperor of Japan, Prince of Wales, and Josephine Baker.
