If you really love ceramics, and want to know more about it - historically and technically speaking - you must visit Sevres Museum. The building itself and its garden are already very interesting - if you go during Spring or Summer times. It's not far away from Paris, and the curiosities about ceramic - dated from a long time ago... More

An afternoon of surprise and marvel in Sevre, France. The porcelain pots were the most beautiful objects of perfection and colour.

An historical place with incredible collections and Great show ´s both historical and contemporary .Both a museum and manufacture , still living at an international scale. The best of French craftmanship . You can visit and buy from a beautifull selection which is very expensive ,but you buy history and treasure craftmanship .

This is very interesting with ceramics throughout history and from different parts of the world. There are three floors. There is a permanent section and a temporary section for new exhibits. It s also next to a wonderful park.

Getting this far out of central Paris, away from any other reason, is not the best use of time and energy. The collection is not very impressive in comparison with M.Arts Decoratif and labeled the lazy way... numbers that correspond to a list not adjacent to the object of interest. Due to recent events, self important security personnel are too... More

Beautiful ceramic pieces, enjoyed it without english explanations too. There is the manufacture "next door", but only open on school holidays and you need to make a reservation in advance!

Ignore the google instructions about busses, etc. When you get out of the metro, walk about 400m across the bridge over the Seine and you're essentially there. The highlights of this little museum are a gallery full of late medieval and renaissance pottery (including some fun German beer pots!). A gallery of 18th-19th century Sevres pieces, and--to my taste, the... More

The museum exists since the 1820s and is a host of large individual collections from several continents. It can be easily accessed through Metro after 10 minutes walk crossing the bridge. Besides the value for ceramic fans it has a historical value as it was the location for signing the Treaty of Sevres after WWI (10 August 1920) when new... More

We enjoyed this museum because we are collectors of French porcelain. We would recommend this museum to others who are also interested in this subject. However, there is only a minimal amount of information presented in English on the museum's expository plaques. We only recommend this place for people who can read and understand French, as we do.
