We visited over Easter as it was included within our ticket bundle, to be honest not really expecting much but how wrong we were. As we walked through the different tile displays, we recognised familiar designs we see every day, in London mainly and learning the history behind the factory and trade was an eye opener. I now look at... More

Hi hopes of this place but when arrived a was disappointed as I imagined we would see how tiles are made but nothing except a sign saying tours Wednesday. It's nice to some exhibits of bathroom shop tube and bar made of tiles but otherwise disappointed

We visited here on the bank holiday Monday (1st May). The website said it shut at 5pm, however when we arrived we were told 4pm! It might be worth phoning ahead to confirm the time. Luckily we have the museum passport, so we can return again to finish the bits we didn’t see. From what I saw, it was very... More

This place used to be fabulous and perhaps I was expecting it to be the same, but sadly it has changed, at one time I could spend many hours here admiring the different tiles, I used to be fascinated by the elaborate tilework in the toilet they had on display (sadly that is now just a hole in the ground)...

Very interesting place to learn and see how tiles were made, used over the years and how much they were a big part of the local economy. Shame the seconds shop was closed on the day due to staff sickness and the staff were on a training day so the tours were not taking place. Overall a good place to... More

I was here before a few years ago, but it is even better now than it was then. There are several new displays and an improved shop. The tiles are displayed beautifully displayed just for admiring them as art, but the museum also gives a great sense of history, giving the feel of how it was in Victorian days and... More

The collection of tiles in this museum is amazing! There are some beautiful examples - which I would love in my home!! There are good information boards telling the history of the tiles and the museum. There is a workshop where children and adults can decorate a tile of their own.

We went here with two kids, 5 & 11yrs. Was expecting a quick visit with little interest from them... However, they were given a trail each and loved filling it in and reading about the tiles. There is a lovely studio where you can decorate a tile yourself. Either totally from scratch or a pre outlined one. They're fired and... More

Came to the museum with 61 children on a school trip. Children loved following the trail around the galleries. A super time, lovely galleries. Thanks
