Musee Beaux Arts

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 2, 2016

So few visitors, which is unfair for this nice Beaux Arts Muséum.
3 small Renoirs , one Morisot, a few Guillaumin and others ..
History of Limoges as well .. a real treat of quietness.

This museum is within the former Bishop's Palace, which is set in the Bishops gardens, the building itself is lovely, the exterior as well as the interior architecture is typical of its time. The collections within are also very interesting, with most of the information very relevant to Limoges and the Limousin. There is a section devoted to Limoges in Roman times, and there are Egyptian antiquities collected by a Limousin manufacturer. There is a lovely collection of limoges enamels too. All in all a very worthy visit for a few hours. While you are there you should also pop into the St. Etienne Cathedral, which has lovely stained glass windows.

There is a small admission charge for this museum but it is worth it. There is plenty to see in the main building but it is the beautiful gardens and grounds that most appealed to me. I'm not sure I liked all the sculptures on display in the grounds at the time I visited. I have included photos for you to see. I took pictures of a selection of paintings and other items to show the range of works on display. Recommended.

Not the biggest of museums but worth the entry. Only those over 26 pay €5 and so for myself the entry was free! Lots of fantastic sculptures to see outside and on the grounds. Inside there is a very interesting section of the museum which shows how limoges has grown and changed from its original build. Also has plenty of famous limoges porcelain items to look at. Great little museum and worth popping in. Also right near the cathedral which is worth a look.
