There was a special Picaso exibit that was showing while we were there. Very cool. This would be a must see for anyone interested in ceramics.

If you love ceramics, don't miss this gem. The collection of ceramics was extraordinary. One of my best moments was a woman pointing to some platters saying that her grandmother had a set of plates exactly like those displayed.

The museum occupies the hotel Hocqueville since 1984 (said Bellegarde hotel). Dating from the seventeenth, it is built on the ruins of ''château de Rouen'', it was built on the ruins of the Roman theater of Rotomagus.
