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.

Housed in the old Bishop's Palace, the museum offers an interesting diversion for an hour or two. The collection includes Egyptian relics, remains from the Roman and Medieval history of the city, a comprehensive overview of enamelling with which the city is synonymous, and some...More

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.
