The history of the Potteries all wrapped up in one unique museum! Step back in time and explore the last Victorian Pottery factory complete with bottle ovens and original workshops where traditional pottery making skills are demonstrated daily. Visitors can have a go at throwing a pot, painting a piece of pottery or making a bone china flower for a small extra charge. There are also the 1840s Doctors House, the Tile Gallery, or you can discover the history of the toilet in our 'Flushed With Pride' exhibition!

The museum hosts a range of workshops, themed events, Halloween ghost tours and a Victorian Christmas Festival. Please call us for an events programme.

The Gladstone Tearoom serves delicious home made snacks, morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon teas. Our Gift Shop sells an extensive range of quality gifts and souvenirs to suit all price ranges, included exclusive hand made items produced on site.

Ask about our Museum Passport scheme where you can access all of Stoke on Trent's Museums for a whole year from as little as £6.50.
