“Fantastic day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

This has a bit of everything, there is the part where you look at the history of china, the part where you see fine china making in action and the museum of old historical china pieces. there are also local china/pottery artists workshops on site so you can even commission your own piece. Great day out especially if its wet outside as most things are under cover.

“See the china as it's made”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Went here between Blists Hill and the Tar Tunnel. There are several workshops where you can watch the manufacture of various items from ornaments to cups and plates. The staff are very friendly and take the time to talk to you about how they make them. In addition there is an area where children can paint their own ornaments (cost extra). For anyone who does not wish to take the walk to the Tar Tunnel, there is a very nice cafe opposite the China museum where they can wait for others in their party that do.
