This is where you learn to feel about Limoges Porcelain. You must come, it is in walking distance. You will come away with your eyes feeling pleasured. Respect for M. Adrien Dubouche, and those who conserve after him.

Friendly staff and a huge collection presented in year order. The weather was in the high 30's and so was the museum.

We didn't have enough time to do justice to this museum as we arrived late in the afternoon in Limoges. There are three floors displaying the most wonderful pieces of Limoges pottery both old and new and also a history of pottery work from ancient to modern times from all around the world, plus a very interesting contemporary installation. Many... More

Last year we visited Limoges but only had time to visit the Cathedral and general museum nearby which were good. Therefore, this time we were determined to see this museum at the other end of the town - the main centre. It was a Sunday and the large car park above ground across the road was virtually empty. The impressive... More

The museum is quite vast and has an extensive variety of porcelain representing many styles throughout the ages. There are some good exhibits which give an insight as to the how, way back when. Although there is a route that you can follow, probably better off doing your own thing although sometimes one could get lost. A little knowledge of... More

Really interesting variety from ancient to modern with the actual collection of Limoges having the most variety of styles and imaginations. Well worth a visit. Easy parking across the road.

This museum is housed in a 1930's Art Deco building that has been modernised in an innovative way. The exhibits are vast and varied, with a set route to follow. Perhaps it may be easier to follow your own path. For a modest entrance fee of €4.50 it was well worth a couple of hours.

This substantial and purpose built museum houses a remarkable collection from ancient Egypt and Greece to pretty recent obscure(?) objects. For the real enthusiast a long visit with detailed visit notes would be essential... For those of lesser interest, eg Pottery folk, an hour or two suffices... Unsurprisingly, not much British stuff, though of course Wedgewood/Doulton/Spode there.

outstanding collection of pottery, china, and a must see for any one interested in china, pottery, glass and stem ware. The museum is not well promoted but worth the effort to find it, and really, it was as good as Stoke on Trent, and even the collection at the V & A as far as china, pottery goes. Fabulous building,... More
