Presentation
Among the pieces on display, jewelry and statuary dominate. The Museum collects in these technical fields an impressive series of masterpieces covering a long chronological period from the 12th to 19th centuries - cross to double ties of Souilly (12th century), arm-reliquary of Saint-Maur (15th century), very beautiful Episcopal butt in vermeil (XVIII century).

In the area of statuary, a large number of materials, techniques and style are represented. Is thus an exceptional vierge à l'enfant Meuse from the 14th century, a Saint Martha of the school of Ligier Richier, copies of popular or scholarly statuary of the XVII and XVIII centuries, works in wood of Saint Lucia or dress waxes nanceiennes.
These outstanding works are part of an evolutionary museography that took the party of simplicity and transparency. In this sleek frame, the objects to which it has entrusted the mission to express the sacred reveal their splendor, their sumptuousness and strength plastic.

In a room provided for that purpose, a temporary exhibition is dedicated to the eponymous Archangel of the town of Saint-Mihiel and its iconography through sculptures, paintings and stained glass, but also to the Abbey, its history and architecture.
