I was in Stoke-on-Trent meeting friends and we ended up at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery by an interesting series of "coincidences" which could easily constitute a tale of their own. The venue is in Hanley, 5 minutes walk from the bus terminal. The...More

Wonderful way to spend an afternoon. One of the best things Labour ever did, making museums free entry. Never know why don't drop in more often. Always interesting.

Last Sunday Meridith Towne's presentation at the Potteries Museum,' The Victorian Dressmaker' was excellent! Packed with social history, well delivered with some lovely costumes to illustrate. Enjoyed every minute! Many thanks.

We had a great day out and there was plenty to keep the whole family amused including an 18 month old. Free entry! Nice and clean, we will definitely be back to try out the cafe!

Well... free to enter with a suggested donation of £3 per person, which is so under priced! It is easy worth double that and more, it’s on three levels, and takes a good couple of hours to see it all. It’s very interactive with lots...More
