You thought museums closed on Monday? That is usually true, but not in the case of the French National Museums. In the city of Limoges, this means that BOTH the major museums are closed on Tuesday.

The museum's site is beautiful, an old building just renovated. A great marriage of old and modern. Some parts of the museum are being renovated. There was a great exhibition about the origin of the colour Blue with great pieces from the Far East and Middle East. The museum houses porcelaine from the early days to modern days. Explains how...

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.

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.
