This was lovely afternoon exploring a bit the history of the area with a good visual and hands on exhibitions. I can see this being very suited to children, but I had a great time non the less.

When I suggested another visit to here, my 2 granddaughters were really excited. We have taken them four times before so had half expected they wouldn't be enthusiastic. We arrived early ( 10 a.m.) aiming to get the throwing a pot activity first. As well as full size potters wheels for older children, there are smaller hand powered wheels for... More

I absolutely LOVED this place. It was atmospheric, interesting and fun. With opportunities to try different pottery techniques, watch demonstrations and learn about the history of pottery, it's fascinating. Moreover the section on sanitation is really interesting too and the recreated Victorian court was so well done. If you'd like the opportunity to step back in time look no further.

Today was the first time I had visited Gladstone and it was fantastic! My 6 year old daughter loved painting a pot in the decorating studio and completing the 'find a plate' trail. It's excellent value for money and accessibility is good if you're using a wheelchair or have young children in pushchairs like me. The staff are extremely friendly... More

I first visited Gladstone on a school visit in the late 70s/80s and I wanted to give my 10 year old son a taste of his heritage as we no longer live in Stoke. We weren't disappointed - it was great to watch his eyes light up as we toured round and stare with wonder at the inside of the... More

A much improved genuine Museum without the factory shop emphasis elsewhere in Stoke. Good for children's activities.
