  • We finally took the time to visit this Museum and we were not disappointed! Superb collections of porcelain and earthenware, all times, all regions and all types! The "modern" part have less "connected us" so we were full of magnificent pieces. To do, more so than for a Museum in Paris, is "given" €6 the ticket!
