Everyone can marvel at the virtuosity of the masterpieces on display in an area dedicated to manufacturing techniques. The Adrien Dubouché National Museum and its prestigious collections thus contribute to the international reputation of ceramic arts and the promotion of the exceptional know-how that has made Limoges so famous.

Easy parking in front of the museum. The building itself is stunning. The internal design is well thought through and the display cabinets themselves add to the experience. The porcelain is beautiful. Well worth a visit.
