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

We live in Doylestown and go to the tile works frequently to add new tiles to our collection. We occasionally attend events and tours here and also at the adjacent Fonthill, Henry Mercers' home. If you're visiting the area you really should stop by for the tour... it's fascinating. Annually they host numerous events and their Old Fashioned Fourth of... More

This is both a museum as well as a working tile factory, and the artisans are using the same hand-crafted Moravian tile techniques that have been used for generations. This is on the same general property with the larger Fonthill Museum so if you plan to visit then you should see both (they can all be done in a single... More

This is a very interesting museum. There was a lot of history and many examples of the tiles made there. The admission fee was nominal so it was also a great deal!

this place is awesome. It gives you history and art rolled together. Love to see places that still exist of this nature. More people should take time to go and make a day trip out of this. Let's keep this place going!

Our first visit to Philadelphia and someone suggested heading up to Doylestown to explore. I wish we had made it a full day trip. They have a darling town to discover, but also an incredible museum, castle, and the Moravian Tile and Pottery Works. It was later in the day and we had only time to do one of the... More

This works is still operating with original equipment and design methods. It is a great tour for every age. Don't be shy about speaking with the artisans. They are a wealth of knowledge and clearly enjoy sharing their enthusiasm.

Well planned and laid out venue to explore historic tile works. Foe sale a large selection of creative tiles. They are all made the old fashioned way to last longer than you do. Can be ordered for construction or remodel projects.
