Hand-crafted pottery and a quick self-tour make this a nice entry (or exit) when visiting southern Vermont. Combine it with a lunch at the nearby pub.

Not only do they have great pottery, but their gift shop has lots of other neat things to purchase. I've been visiting Bennington for years and am sad I have missed this great little gem for so many years.

My wife, who has made pottery, and I visited Bennington Potters in August 2014. I was expecting to see potters at work but instead saw a couple of potters overseeing the creation of hundreds of pieces, which were arranged on trays stacked up ready to be fired. The pottery they make is beautiful, as seen by those on display in... More

Great store has a little of everything - Pottery, plates, cups, bowls, pillows, towels, kitchen ware, furniture, garden items (of which we bought 2 bird baths). Self guided factory tour was an added bonus.

This historical museum is much larger than it appears. There are several different rooms, focusing on different events and time periods. My favorite was the Grandma Moses wing. They really are special!!

You can visit the workshop in the back to learn the history and see how things are made. On the day we visited there was only one person was working but she was friendly. Be sure to visit the seconds in the store for discounted pottery.. but be careful for the prices add up very quickly!!

I have been traveling to Vermont for years and never stopped here. My mistake! Tons of awesome pottery and lots of nice things to buy for gifts. Picked up a cute Brie baking snack dish for a friend. Sorry I did not allow more time to spend in Bennington area. Will come back again soon to explore the area and... More
