I wasn’t impressed at all with this museum, a very small exhibit of Egyptian artefacts, the enamels weren’t very inspiring and the fine art was average. I wouldn’t bother. We also went to have a look at the gardens which were poorly attended. The museum...More

There's a fair split of exhibits from Egyptian antiquities to local enamels to fine arts including Renoir and Valadon, Limoges through the ages with some fascinating town models through the centuries. I found the art deco enamel s particularly attractive. Worth the 5€ entrance.

Traces the development of Limoges via a series of models. Good overview of history of the area plus a good Egyptian collection. The paintings, including some early Renoirs are good with a collection of fine porecelain pieces..

This building is gorgeous! Inside and out. It is worth a visit to see one of the most beautiful city halls.

So few visitors, which is unfair for this nice Beaux Arts Muséum. 3 small Renoirs , one Morisot, a few Guillaumin and others .. History of Limoges as well .. a real treat of quietness.

This museum is within the former Bishop's Palace, which is set in the Bishops gardens, the building itself is lovely, the exterior as well as the interior architecture is typical of its time. The collections within are also very interesting, with most of the information...More

There is a small admission charge for this museum but it is worth it. There is plenty to see in the main building but it is the beautiful gardens and grounds that most appealed to me. I'm not sure I liked all the sculptures on...More
