  • Necessarily do when you come to Limoges and more parking is located in front, birth Limougeaude, I enjoyed a lot to go in this museum where beautiful porcelain today, but above all of yesterday are stored. In addition, prosecutors good flower wax, for a good "rainy" day not to overlook this property located in the Center.

  • Limoges is famous worldwide for its hard paste porcelain produced since 1771. The National Museum of China is a must for fans of the genre and also for the curious. Not only are the porcelains of Limoges but also several examples of other famous porcelain! Recommended
