“Great Small Town Museum”

Lovely old building and a great museum (by small town standards). The ladies at the desk were so nice! This is a must-see for anyone who has an interest in the pottery industry.

“Gem of a museum in East Liverpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2008

The Museum of Ceramics is a fantastic place for pottery lovers and pottery collectors. It has 2 floors of wonderful displays, mostly of ceramic ware produced in and around the East Liverpool, Ohio, area from the 1840s to the 1960s. There are some great lifelike displays in the lower level of scenes from the old pottery days in the 1800s, showing what a grueling life it must have been to work in the pottery industry. There is also a wonderful 35 minute multimedia show that gives you a good understanding of how important the pottery industry was to the Ohio River valley in the 19th century. It only costs $4, or $2 for children, and is well worth the visit.
