    I think it was not me because some expert in the field, he has had no great explanations about the history of this museum. Neophyte in the area or not, there are beautiful objects in ceramic, among other things, to see. On the other hand, is there really much, which can eventually wear us... Finally, there are many, so no need to complain about the amount of things to see. Count 1 h 30 visit. The first Sunday of the month it's free!

    Worth a visit; attention to schedules. Parking is a bit difficult: take the tram which is in front.

    The Museum is located in 2 place of Manufacture (Sèvres). Getting there: Tram 2 (stop Museum of Sevres) or Metro line 9 (stop Sèvres bridge). You can discover the history of ceramics across continents. So interesting!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
