A major local industry with a venerable history and close ties to its native region, Bernardaud has undertaken a campaign targeting art connoisseurs and the public at large. The idea is to educate people about porcelain and do away with preconceived ideas. The Bernardaud Foundation conducts year round guided tours of its workshops so visitors can see how porcelain is made. Unlike a conventional museum, visitors are encouraged to touch objects, look closely at the tools on display and try their hand at this craft. This original concept allows visitors to "experience" the creative techniques and gestures used to make porcelain.
Guided tour, including our summer exhibition from June 1st to Sept.30th, everyday, except sunday, including national holidays from 9.45am to 11.15am and from 1.30pm to 4;30pm. Entry: 4,50euros. Free for children under 12.From October to May: by appointment only.
