It doesn't sound very interesting but it really is. It's a Lovely mix of industrial heritage and art decor design. Really worth a visit and a stroke by the river afterwards.

Visited as part of the museum passport and loved it. Lots of interesting displays/exhibits, and the John Scott gallery was a wonderful collection. All 4 of us really enjoyed this museum, it was my favourite of all the museum passport ones.

Tiles are everywhere from bars to bathrooms to underground stations and the designs have followed fashion for some 200 years. You can see examples and have it all... More

The sort of place you could keep going back to. They also offered practical workshops and tile painting which looked fun.

beautiful and interesting collection, we loved it. Only criticism could have done with better signing to find entrance (through the shop) and more information on the individual tiles and exhibits. history of industry v interesting too
