  • We visited this Museum of ceramics in a group with two guides (2 times, p 15). Very interesting to be able to address the different types of ceramics, by continent, then by country. Young guide but already very competent. A must see

  • All old ceramics of the world are in this beautiful Museum, a place also for French regional ceramics.

  • A few nice piece but ultimately this museum has not kept the best parts of the factory (visible at Versailles and other Royal castles of France). It is quite surprising to see mix in the same parts of modern and older works... Only positive the visit was free because the hostess of case was sick.
