Museums

There are many fine museums around the world that exhibit examples of Bohemian art glass created during the Art Nouveau (aka “Jugendstil” in German) period, 1890 – 1910. Not surprisingly, the countries where the largest exhibits of Bohemian art glass are located are Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic.

The museums featured here are those that are devoted to preserving and exhibiting an array of Bohemian art glass produced during this time period. They are also recommended by Loetz.com because their permanent collections offer an emphasis on Loetz and their curators are experienced and knowledgeable. Here the visitor can learn and appreciate the examples on display and likely not find many Kralik or Tiffany pieces attributed to Loetz.

This section will be a work in progress as we write reviews on each of the museums that we have personally visited and recommend.
