The Limoges Fine Arts Museum

The Limoges Fine Arts Museum (Musée de l’Evêché), which is located in the former Bishops’ Palace, contains a huge collection of Limoges enamel from the 12th century to these days. The museum was founded in 1912 but reconstructed between 2006 and 2010 to turn into the modern and intriguing building today.

Do & See

For anyone interested in porcelain, Limoges is the place to go – with shops and museums devoted to the subject. But Limoges cannot be reduced to this part of its history and also offers many surprises such as the palace looking 1920's railway station and the La Règle subterranean tunnels. Around the city is the Limousin, an unspoiled, rustic region of woods, green meadows and rough pasture, simple cottages, flocks of sheep and beefy Limousin cattle.
