We spent a number of hours visiting this museum. The quality of craftsmanship involved in producing the large pictures such as the animals on the wall of the butchers shop is amazing. The museum shows the tile maker's art at it's best. The layout of...More

Do allow the suggested 90 minutes to really enjoy this museum. The displays have been arranged well, so that you can take your time admiring each section as you walk through. There's lots the see, but there is no sense of too much being crammed...More

You can't imagine tiles could be interesting until you visit this museum. Fascinating. Some needlework ladies in our party took photos to try and recreate some of the designes in applique or needlepoint. Calm and relaxing place with good labels and information. As usual a...More

It was really interesting to see the development of tile making in the 19th century and learn about the processes. However, I felt that it was not really sufficiently explained which tile making process applied to which tile and there were a LOT of tiles...More

We visited on the Monday before we were due to come home. Unfortunately we did not allow enough time to look round the whole site, which was a shame as it was really interesting. The tile displays, particularly the ones associated with butchers shops reminded...More
