The tours application

The Adrien Dubouché national Museum launched its mobile visit app for the European Heritage days which took place on the 18th and 19th of September 2021.

The application “MNAD Limoges” allows all kinds of people to take part in an easy and interactive visit of  the museum. The app is a source of precious information which allows you to learn more about the the history of ceramics, to organise your visit in advance or to discover the museum’s collections step by step.

Antique technical or biomedical ceramic potteries made from Limoges porcelain can be seen, this app enables you to dive into the universe of ceramics in all its glory through a selection of 190 pieces from the collections.

Available in both English and French, you can explore the museum with audio and text, the app also includes additional photos of pieces in the museum and other cultural institutions and videos to take your visit even further.

To be able to lengthen your visit, the app allows you to create a “favourites list” by tapping on the hearts.

At the heart of this project, the team members used their own voices to record the texts they had written, meaning there is around 6 and a half hours of recordings.

The visit

Other than the traditional “Discovery Tour”, which enables you to discover the four permanant collections of the museum and offers an overall view of the Adrien Dubouché National Museum and its collections, around ten other themed visits are available. The themes such as “Limoges Porcelain” or “The art of the table from yesterday to today” insclude classics from the museums collections.

Other available themes are “I don’t want to look at plates”, “Unmissable pieces”, “Contemporary art”, “Travel” and “The artists”.

To complete your virtual visit, 10 pieces from the museum have been 3D digitalised and put together on the “3D pieces” route. Visitors are able to virtually handle the museum’s objects and discover all of their sides.

The visit as a family

The family visit allows children from 7 years old to have a unique experience by exploring collections through the pages of a mysterious sketch book.

All year round, the Adrien Dubouché National Museum shares its heritage with a large number of visitors. This fun family visit therefore favours the young audience and their families.
