The lady that gave the tour was very friendly and spoke English, very helpful when you can’t speak the local language. The shop was clean and the pottery pieces were way to get to. A must stop for those looking for pottery.

I find Manufaktura to be more expensive for pottery shopping than several of the other shops. They carry traditional and more modern designs.

We didn’t buy much but the tour was fun. To see the whole process of creating pottery was quite impressive.

This is a really fun place, and kids will enjoy it, too, if they're old enough to keep their hands to themselves and be trusted around stacks of breakables. Factory employs 80 women who train for 3 mos to be artists, then are "tenured" if...More

They had a decent selection of styles, but none really caught our attention. We didn’t end up buying anything here...which is unusual for us in terms of pottery and ceramics.

When friends asked why I was visiting Poland, I somewhat jokingly replied, "because I love their pottery." I told JayWay Travel, organizers of our trip, that I wanted to see the real deal - a factory - not a gift shop - this is where...More

A mapping website I checked said it's 1.1 km from the station to the pottery museum/factory - a 14 minute walk. Apparently, there is no public transit, but maybe there's Uber. . . We arrived by chartered tour bus. I never... More

Only some of their tours are in English, the rest, Polish, so I'd suggest checking their website and reserving in advance. It was fascinating and I too love Polish pottery.
