Could have been more interesting

Interesting historical piece of America. Would have appreciated a bit mire depth - found the potters a bit bored and not welcoming

I wish we could've made some pottery instead of just watching. But a good experience. Informative, not too bad for five bucks either.

Interesting both in terms of architecture and the artistry of tile making. Beautiful building just down the road from Fonthill. If you give yourself enough time you can do both and save money by getting a combo ticket, being cognizant of tour times so you can plan properly. I viewed a film about the tile works and then took a... More

Unique architecture, beautiful tiles, giving the visitor a good behind-the-scenes look at how different kinds of tiles are made. Watch the artists at work, ask questions, explore the whole building and all its nooks and crannies. The clay pit in the basement is literally a very cool place to be on a hot day! The tiles are lovely, and it's... More

Combine this visit with your tour of Mr Mercer's house. You'll see plenty of his tiles in his house and then you can see them at the tile works and even purchase some for yourself or as a gift !! We have one room that has a nautical theme and it wouldn't be complete with the large tile that we... More

Among the more ecclectic things you can do in Doylestown is a visit to the tile works. This is a kind of bizarre place but really interesting. One of the things I always loved about the tile works were their one of a kind production pieces. THis was a great spot to take out of town guests looking to see... More

....visit Henry Chapman's Mercer house before coming to his factory....very close and will give his life and times background with a timed tour of his cement house from early in last century and his love of tiles. Allow about 1 1/2 hours....Nice tiles gift shop.

We just loved our visit this spring, the tour was self-led, we were the last ones in for the day on a cold day, so we wandered quietly and enjoyed the tiles and the space. Fascinating history and living history as they continue to make the famous tiles. So now we have some for home!

I grew up in the area, and had been to the Mercer Museum a few times, but this was my first time at the tile works. The pieces they have created and continue to create are amazing. (I once stumbled on a fabulous mosaic in Philadelphia that has, thankfully, been maintained despite now being part of a chain store facade.)... More

We spent a few hours in Doylestown (one can't go to Philly or NYC every weekend..). The original idea was to walk the downtown, all five blocks of it, and then walk to the pottery works. That doesn't work - there is no walking path all the way to the Works, and the walk isn't scenic at all anyway -... More
