Visits & excursions

See Limoges porcelain, get close to it, touch it, buy it, make it yourself – all this, it's in the Haute-Vienne!
You can admire the largest collection of Limoges porcelain (in the world!) at the Adrien Dubouché Museum  or if you prefer a themed approach at Palloux Museum, in Saint-Yrieix.
 
You can meet the creators in their workshops, such as the Salamandre,  or discover the history of those who created porcelain at the  Four des Casseaux Museum
 
You can also see those that make it today in their factories open to visits like Carpenet in Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat, for example. You can buy a new service at a good price or splurge out on a creative design in the boutiques.
And why not a course, to get your hands on the raw material?  You can try out your creativity and meet our experts who aren't mean with their advice or anecdotes.
 
nature-trek between porcelain makers' sites can happen as well: from sites where kaolin is extracted to   porcelain makers' estates, our countryside is the link.
 
From North to South, from East to West, our département lives and breathes porcelain. It's everywhere and even where you don't expect it: from street furniture in the streets of Limoges to furniture in a house proposed by Jacques Pergay,  it takes advantage of all occasions to be admired!  
 
So, you can follow our Limoges in Haute-Vienne Porcelain Road or choose a visit at random: porcelain is never far away here!
