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.

Had a great video that showed the process of making Limoges china. My husband does ceramics so he was fascinated. It is in French, but understandable since you are looking at people doing the work. It's a little long for a non-ceramic artist. The place just goes on and on and on. There are case after case of lovely ceramics... More

The Museum holds 15,000 objects and if you are interested in ceramics it is a must see. It shuts for an hour at lunchtime but the ticket 4.50 Euro's is valid all day. I was a little frustrated there was not more dialogue or any labels in English (not being a French speaker) although some gallery panels are in French/English.... More

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...

some beautiful pieces and lovely building. Good value at 4.50 euros although no English translations but still managed to muddle through!
