For a unique experience and a very warm welcome, the stunning Wedgwood Museum is the place to visit - whether you just like looking at beautiful objects or have a specialist interest. We are the home of one of the most interesting ceramic collections in the world. Our galleries tell the story of Josiah Wedgwood, his family, and the company he founded two-and-a-half centuries ago. New visitor experience for 2015! As a result, we are closing the site to customers from 24th December 2014 through until June 2015.

Popped in just for a quick look but stayed for ages. Beautifully set out and Well worth the visit. The site is amazing with lovely walks and places to sit and eat. Stayed all day!

You could spend a long time just looking at all the exhibits in the museum which takes you through the development of the china clay industry and the lives of the Wedgwood family.

Clearly they have spent many millions on developing this attraction. The buildings and plaza are impressive. The restaurant was too busy to accommodate us but looked nice. The high-tea restaurant is very smart...we only had a light lunch which was OK but a little overpriced...More

Lots to see and it's wonderful to walk round the factory and watch the wonderfully skilled artisans. You can get a really good meal or snack. The catering staff are very polite and give excellent customer service

The museum is fine but the highlight comes at the end whn you can have a go and some traditional crafts - like the potters' wheel and various clay activities. Unfortunately you must pay for a full price tour ticket before trying these activities out....More

The layout leads you through the centuries enjoying the journey and how the style and designs changed. Especially like the beautuful wooden cabinet of drawers showing all the trials which Josiah made when trying to find the right glaze etc.
