Owner description: In its fully renovated setting, the Adrien Dubouché National Museum holds the largest collection of Limoges porcelain in the world. It also contains representative works from the key stages in the history of ceramics. The museum route follows a journey through time that starts in Antiquity and crosses continents and civilisations, leading visitors towards the most recent designs. 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.

Look at what made Limoges famous---porcelain
Take your time to savour the displays-they are in French.
Excellent on a wet day

Limoge is famous for its ceramics, so a trip to this museum is a must if you are in Limoge. Don’t be put off by its location on the map as it turns out only to be a gentle walk from the city centre. The museum has a significant collection of ceramics including Sevres and from Limoge. It isn’t as big or as impressive as the collection of Meissen in the Zwinger museum in Dresden, but excellent nonetheless. Some absolutely creative pieces and some with beautiful colours. One thing that did let it down was the absence of any literature in languages other than French. Again it is closed on Tuesdays and opens between 10-12 and again from 2pm on other days.

Well you will need at least a morning or afternoon to see the wonders of this amazing collection of Pottery and Porcelain. If you are an English speaker too you can borrow an IPad from the front desk for a loan of some of your identity (Passport etc.) What a wonderful building too. There is a huge car park in Place Winston Churchill too which is where the museum is. Apparently the museum is closed on Tuesdays.

The museum offers an I-Pad in various languages as a guide to the exhibits. The process of making porcelain is well illustrated including a fascinating collection of the machinery and the development of the techniques and materials. The collection of porcelain on show is quite outstanding.

You could spend age here looking at ceramics through the ages and how they were made.A nice touch was that they had folding seats to carry for people with walking difficulties
