Surprisingly nice museum. We liked it that the botanical gardens and cathedral where near at each other. Behind the museum you can find some nice bars in old Limoges. The part about the history of Limoges is very nice for children.

Although the museum is relatively small it has everything starting with the old Egypt. There are interesting models of Limoges through the time - there used to be even an amphitheatre but sadly it was used to build houses in the older ages. There is...More
