For a unique experience and a very warm welcome, the stunning Wedgwood Museum is the place to visit - whether you just like looking at beautiful objects or have a specialist interest. We are the home of one of the most interesting ceramic collections in the world. Our galleries tell the story of Josiah Wedgwood, his family, and the company he founded two-and-a-half centuries ago.

 

New visitor experience for 2015! As a result, we are closing the site to customers from 24th December 2014 through until June 2015.

I was given a day's visit to Wedgwood as a present. What a magical place! The whole day was wonderful. The staff were magnificent, the museum, factory tour and shopping were fabulous but the best part was throwing a pot! I loved it and will definitely go back.

A very modern building, containing thousands of very, very old items from the early days of pottery. Still pristine! Plenty of parking, friendly and helpful staff at reception and in the museum shop. Excellent tea room, with plenty of time to wander, sit, refresh and wander again. Well wort multiple visits, let alone "one day". Didn't even have time for... More

Wonderful examples of Wedgwood and its story too. You can wonder at your leisure and take it all in. You do need quite a bit of time to properly see it all, although that of course is personal taste. I found that I was flagging by the end - all 'potteried' out! We spoke with another couple who said they'd... More

A well presented site incorporating the terrific Wedgwood Museum, shops, eating areas and lovely outside space. There is so much to see both within the museum and on the factory floor, give yourself plenty of time to explore and take a break in the tea shop or restaurant. At every turn, you will find friendly, helpful staff to answer questions... More

Living amongst this industry I was lucky enough to do the tour, museum etc. What a fascinating and enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. All aspects are shown and explained whilst walking around the factory. Then there is the Exhibits to see, now I am more educated to the Pottery industry.

We were stunned by the size and quality of this museum. Was quiet so we could see everything clearly and linger over the more gorgeous pieces
