Visited this museum on a Wednesday afternoon in mid June. Even though I had been given a leaflet by the Conches tourist office, have visited the town a couple of times already in the last few days so gad got my bearings a bit, can speak/understand French well, this museum is not the easiest to find. We got there at our 3rd attempt and then after asking someone (we were actually just round the corner and had passed it!). It's just near the "gendarmerie " and fire station so if you're travelling by car, follow those signs and you'll end up near.
Having got the moaning out of the way, our visit was well worth it.
There is currently (until about November 2014 I believe) an exhibition of stained glass by Gabriel Loire. The works are beautifully and tastefully displayed to good effect. The colours of the glass are very vibrant. There is a TV screen and you can use headphones for the commentary which is in French. This wasn't a problem for me but my husband couldn't benefit much. (The receptionist knew we were English as she spoke English to us but nothing was said about translations for the commentary.) There were then some items like vases in display cases, some of which were by a local artist. They were stunning if you appreciate glassware. Some postcards are on sale at 1euro each of some of glass items.
The museum is open afternoons from Wednesday to Sunday in season and costs 3euros each with concession for young people/ children. A visit lasts about half to three quarters of an hour or so. There is a small car park at the museum but if it is full, it shouldn't be such a problem to park round and about. I didn't notice any disabled parking spaces.
We enjoyed the visit and were glad we had persisted in trying to find the museum.
