Had a very enjoyable morning in the museum exhibits range from early history to up to date modern art so something for all tastes The film show at the entrance to the exibit hall was very interesting indeed and shows how porcelain is made fired and decorated

It is interesting that this museum has the corner of ceramic technic. After the technical display, there are trenmendous collection from 18th century. I found large pot of Satsuma-yaki which might be exported here about 150 years ago from Japan. My wife and I enjoyed quick look.

I'm not a porcelain conossieur but I can appreciate beauty and craftmanship. This is worth a visit, incredible pieces here including antiquities from around the world of ceramics. Not so keen on modern pieces but classical pieces from different manufacturing houses amazing. Only €4 to get in as I'd paid to visit another museum the day before (normal entry €6).... More

There is a lot to see and a lot is stunning but in order to avoid museum fatigue, I recommend walking past the displays til something catches your eye. As others have said, everything is in French. There is a very good video at the start which sadly doesn't have English subtitles but is highly visual so in my view,... More

I'm probably not the best person to review this as I only went in to see what the building was like architecturally. However, I did find the explanations of how pottery was made very interesting and I did enjoy the presentation of the porcelain works . None of this was in English so spent a lot of time translating for... More

If Limoges is known for one thing it has to be porcelain, so if you're in Limoges the main place to visit has to be this excellent museum. Your visit starts with a 20 minute video (in French) which explains the processes. If you have time (3 hours would probably not be too much) you can then follow the recommended... More

Limoges is for us a synonym of the best porcelain in the planet and living in this "small global village" we need to accept that English is a global idiom and there should be a translation for all explanations at the museum pieces (and I am not a native speaker...). We a very limited French knowledge I enjoyed 40% of... More

Gorgeous building and interesting exhibit. I went on a cold wet day and it was nice to come into a place warm and breathtaking. As an English speaker it was nice to have the front desk give me info in my native tounge.

We really enjoyed our trip to this museum. The staff were friendly. It was great value for money for 4.50 euros each. The introductory DVD really helped (although all in French). The collection is vast and based in a lovely historic building with modern facilities.
