Interesting place. I love pottery though. Quite a lot to see. Mainly for adults though. No cafe. Lots of parking on nearby streets. ?Short walk from Worcester City Centre.

Extremely well laid out and informative museum. Great trail for children to follow (with sweets as an added incentive). Both ladies were so helpful (I was enquiring about old Worcester vases).

A large collection of pottery throughout the years. It took almost 2 hours to visit this museum. Worth a visit.

We decided to visit after coming out of the cathedral and it was only round the corner. We visited on a relatively quiet day which gave us time and space to look around at our pace. The museum is filled with stunning pottery and it is defiantly getting the audio guide as it makes it more interesting when you are... More

We went on a VERY quiet February day but a retired guilder was demonstrating his craft. There really was plenty to see from historical pieces over a number of centuries. The museum covers 2 floors and the audio mobile (included in the admission price) was excellent.

I had gone to keep my wife happy but enjoyed it immensely and learnt a lot. Not sure I would go again there is only so much pottery you can see in 1 go.

This was a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of the Xmas market,it was a bit of a walk but well worth it if you like old china. It is a beautiful collection. My only gripe is that they didn't have any seconds in the shop, I couldn't afford any of the beautiful items on sale.
