Located within a distinguished “hôtel particulier” or mansion, officially recognized as a Monument Historique, the Musée Hôtel Le Vergeur showcases a distinctive compilation. The hôtel, dubbed Le Vergeur, derives its name from the affluent Vergeur family, who retained ownership of the property until the 16th century.

Under the ownership of Hugues Krafft, the most recent custodian of Hôtel Le Vergeur, a substantial portion of his wealth was dedicated to the meticulous restoration of the estate. Krafft embellished the rooms with exquisite furnishings and curated an array of artistic pieces sourced from his extensive voyages overseas.

At present, the museum exhibits Krafft’s assemblage of decorative arts, alongside an assorted selection of prints and paintings that vividly narrate the history of Reims. The collection encompasses items that played a role in royal coronations, as well as remarkable examples of religious art, most notably the engravings crafted by Albrecht Dürer.
