Not just cups!!

Housed in the former historic Hospital, this is an extensive display over 3 levels and traces not just Limoges but the whole overview of Europe and Asia and there influence

I truly enjoyed a visit of this recently refurbished national museum. If you like ceramics, this is a must to visit.

If you are in Limoges then this museum is a must. It is very well laid out and has a stunning display of ceramics, glassware and porcelain from various countries. There is also a very interesting video showing various techniques of manufacturing the beautiful pieces. Excellent.

A very nice building, good parking in the area, entrance well indicated. Walking route, but clearly indicated on staircases only. Exceptional collection, both in breadth and in depth. Maybe one of the best of its kind in Europe. Splendid introductory video. Items are all labelled, but cursory and in French only. Even very interesting pieces (Chinese porcelain with Arabic texts)...

We visited as part of a city tour. We were supposed to have a guided tour, but the guide didn't show up! The displays are well done, explanations are in French only (missed the guide!)

An old and stylish museum building completed by a new architecture - on the whole a convincing architecture for a museum. Especially the department with porcelaine from Limoges is worth seeing it - with phantastic and sometimes crazy pieces of art from the late 19th century!

Popped in for a bit of culture during our weekend. Really informative displays, but could do with being in other languages too. Or an audio tour would be a good idea. However greatly enjoyed the displays.

Just on the outskirts of the city centre,walkable. A large beautiful vast building in stunning grounds. Wonderful insight into the porcelain making process. The actual process has not really changed. The audio guide would be very handy in english too as we are not completely fluent as yet.

A fascinating collection for anyone interested in porcelain and many people who are not. Many examples of porcelain manufacture from antiquity to the present. Unless you are an aficionado, it would be best to take in the highlights as there is almost too much to see.

We didn't know what to expect to be honest, but the collection is stunning in terms of variety and volume. The children liked the colourful displays. It deserves an appropriate time for the visit: there is lots to see.
