  • The ceramics collection is rather small, and decent, but nothing great. There are obviously local made ceramics, but also samples from Italy and China. However, certainly as much a reason to visit...  more »
  • I never expected to find such fine maijolica in Rouen - but they had a thriving industry and the museum has some lovely examples. The building itself is very fine and worth visiting in its own right.  more »
