In a completely renovated setting, the Adrien Dubouché National Museum displays the largest collection of Limoges porcelain in the world. It also houses works which represent the greatest stages in the history of ceramics. The trail takes the visitors back through time beginning in Antiquity, crossing continents and civilisations and finally leading them to the most recent creations.


An area dedicated to manufacturing techniques allows everyone to appreciate the expertise in the masterpieces on display.


The Adrien Dubouché National Museum and its prestigious collections thereby contribute, within the public institution of Cité de la céramique –  Sèvres & Limoges, to the international reputation of ceramic arts and to an appreciation of the exceptional expertise which has made the city of Limoges so famous.

The museum is fully accessible to people with reduced mobility.
