In a Neo-Baroque palace near the UN’s Palais des Nations is a museum all about ceramics and glassware.

Musée Ariana was set up in the 1880s by the art collector Gustave Revilliod, and named after his mother.

There are 20,000 pieces of ceramics and glassware in the galleries, covering 12 centuries and extending to all corners of the globe.

All forms of ceramics are here, from earthenware to stoneware, china, porcelain and pottery.
