We are delighted and most grateful to have received as a new year gift from the Hector Berlioz Museum a selection of 12 postcards issued by the Museum in January 2014. 

This page displays the scanned copies of these postcards, two of which show the garden of the Museum and the rest are some of the items in the rich collection of the Museum. © Musée Hector-Berlioz. All rights of reproduction reserved.
