  • There are some beautiful pieces, including Chinese statuettes from the Tang dynasty, but in limited numbers, some beautiful pieces of Korean and Japanese pottery, but the visit is quickly consumed! Next to that, there are temporary exhibitions that may allow you to discover new horizons, such as Finnish ceramics, very interesting, at the end of July during my visit. Good luck then!

  • The special exhibitions held throughout the year are impressive and I visit every time. Photography is possible with special exceptions, so if you like ceramic photography, it is a must-see place.
