In this museum, which was free to enter during the Polish Pottery Festival, there is much to learn about how the styles and designs have evolved over the years, through the cold war, and more. They have a film to see, inforative handouts, and more. Worth taking the time to visit!

A great dive into the history of the ceramic making in the area as well as some precious, and old pieces. A very great place to stop and see the history of Polish Pottery especially if you are buying it!

I have been coming to Poland to or purchase pottery for 15 years and this was the first time I got to this active manufacturing museum and store. It was a little difficult to find as it was off the beaten path but absolutely a "do not miss"!

We went to several of the pottery stores. The first day we arrived at Manufaktura near closing time. They allowed us to choose our pottery and save it to return the next day. Boy, was that fortunate. When we went back on Saturday morning there were two or three tour buses and the store was wall to wall people. We... More

The staff are very helpful and do not mind how long you take browsing around the shop. There is such a... More

We visited this shop first and were not disappointed. The pottery is so well made and inexpensive compared to other countries. The quality is unreal, as well. There are many items to choose from and I found almost everything I wanted. The staff was quite helpful and packed and boxed all our items. It was very nice.

We very much enjoyed our visit and the pottery, but did not take the tour as we had 2 small children with us who would likely have been disruptive. So many wonderful shops in this town...something in each shop that makes it memorable

While the store itself contained lots of beautiful pottery, which is why I went in the first place, I was a little disappointed. I contacted the store a week before showing up to try and set up a Tour and workshop for my husband and I. I understand that it was very short notice, so I wouldn't have been upset... More

We took the 30 min tour of the pottery factory. I was very impressed with the work that goes into making the pottery. It made me appreciate the pieces I selected later in the store.
