The Adrien Dubouché National Museum is located in Limoges, in the heart of the principal porcelain making region in France.

In its fully renovated setting, the Adrien Dubouché National Museum holds the largest collection of Limoges porcelain in the world. It also contains representative works from the key stages in the history of ceramics. The museum route follows a journey through time starting from Antiquity, crossing continents and civilisations and leading visitors towards the most recent pieces.

A vertiatble collection of porcelaine from around the world as well as Limoges

Well you will need at least a morning or afternoon to see the wonders of this amazing collection of Pottery and Porcelain. If you are an English speaker too you can borrow an IPad from the front desk for a loan of some of your identity (Passport etc.) What a wonderful building too. There is a huge car park in Place Winston Churchill too which is where the museum is. Apparently the museum is closed on Tuesdays. -trip advisor 

In this way, the Adrien Dubouché National Museum and its prestigious collections contribute to the international reputation of ceramic arts and the promotion of the exceptional know-how that has made Limoges so famous.


A truly great museum – not to be missed!

Limoges has been famous for a very long time for production of high quality china and porcelain. This museum has a great collection and is beautifully designed. It is also very modern using the latest technology. We were each issued an iPad when we entered to give us descriptions of each display in English. Very impressive in every respect. We really enjoyed this museum – trip advisor
