I was really looking forward to visiting this museum as I am an avid collector of English ceramics. We came especially on the wekkend of the biannual ceramic antique fair. It was a disappointment. One room with very few 'stalls'. We continued our visit through the rest of the museum. It wasn't uninteresting, but we were totally underwhelmed. Have seen... More

2 floors of beautiful displays of Royal Worcester. Good value as includes audio tour and shop. So sad the workshops have closed and gone overseas. What is the point in buying Royal Worcester made anywhere but Worcester, I don't get it.

Went to the potty on a spur of the monument. Had a great time looking at all the china made in the area. The audio tour was great and very interested

Loved looking around this place, although was tinged with sadness that Royal Worcester is no longer made here. The craftsmanship is mind blowing, with so much to see it was difficult to take it all in. The audio guide is excellent quality, and gives plenty of background information. It would be really useful if the Museum could produce a DVD,... More

Now a specialist museum, with no pieces being produced locally this is sadly, a reflection of what was, and what could still be......... Our visit to the museum of Royal Worcester pottery coincided with an antiques/ ceramics fair ,with a number of experts, including notably televisions' Henry Sandon. This,of course, meant that the museum was significantly busier than we had... More

Staff so friendly and the museum full of interesting items. We purchased a beautiful piece from the shop, which is all the more special now the factory has closed.

While the acres of display cabinets of exquisite porcelain may not be to everyone's taste, the A-V tour was very well-pitched to explain the long history, the technical developments, key anecdotes of many pieces, the lives of the employees etc., so you could easily spend a long time there. It's a shame that production is no longer in Worcester, so... More

We were the first customers on a Saturday in August, spent a wonderful couple of hours looking at the two floors of fantastic porcelain. Such a pity that the factory has been closed and that Royal Worcester is now made overseas!

This museum is a delight if pottery is your thing. It took us nearly 3 hours to complete. The audio tour is a must. Cabinets full of the most exquisite china detailing the history of porcelain and bone china manufacturing in Worcester. The vintage pieces for sale are stunning. You couldn't leave without a piece of vintage china. Well worth... More

This is a lovely museum. You start in the gift shop (Second Hands) and go through the Georgian collection and up lifts and stairs to the Victorian Gallery and then down again to the Gift Shop. Went on a Thursday morning - perhaps 12 people there. Got a free audio set for our £5.00 entrance fee. Display cases are packed... More
