  • A great spot to follow the history of faience in the Breton area. Some very elaborate pieces on display. If you like dishes, this is for you!  more »
  • Very nice Museum, but a bit small and with little change in exhibitions. There are a few quality HB parts, but nothing exceptional.

  • An original Museum which proves that pottery is an art. A learning path very clear and informative. Friendly staff.
