This museum/gallery houses small a collection of ancient artefacts, and a large collection of art/ceramics from local artists. Their main focus however, is the museum shop, which has a very large collection of ceramic items: plates, bowls, jugs displayed across multiple rooms. The painting techniques were explained and we were able to watch some of the artists at work. The staff in the museum and shop were helpful, not too pushy either. Prices were reasonable and are fixed so there was no awkward haggling. We ended up buying a few small items. If you are staying in Goreme, there is a bus every hour to Avanos for 5TL each way. Entrance fee is 10TL, please note the museum pass is not accepted here as this is a privately owned museum.

Came because of all the fantastic reviews. First of all, the trip by public bus from Göreme was 15mins and we alighted near the market and walked 800m to the museum. Winter time, hardly any visitors. Walked around museum on our own, nice spacious areas of two sections modern and ancient ceramics with lovely displays and this doesn’t take too long 30-40mins. The cafe is closed. We couldn’t get a hot drink which we wanted to warm up from the cold walk outside. Naturally the way out is through the retail section, it is big and sells mass produced tourist souvenirs to special pieces by celebrity artists. There was no one from the museum to take us on an introductory tour, or even offer a workshop. All the staff were in the retail section eager to promote a sale. The expert craftsmen section has better quality works but nothing so stunning as to catch my eye. Some staff insisted that we should walk the whole area around the shop before leaving. Quite disappointed in the whole experience as we came all the way here on our own but didn’t get the good experience described by others as there was no interest from museum staff in our presence except to push for shopping.

Call it a glorified gift shop all you want, my wife and I expected the sales pitch going into the museum, but to be honest, this place exceeded all our expectations. We drove around the neighbourhood looking for this place thinking we were in the wrong area, I mean why would a museum be in a residential part of town? Even when we found the museum, we didn't think much of it; it just looked like some kind of roadside museum, and we thought it would just be a quick visit. However, little did we know, the museum was buried underground, so when we walked in, we were just blown away, there was just so much to see; the collection of ceramics by the Guray family and local artists was vast and there was an exhibition of some modern art. We were led around by the museum's owner and curator - Mr Guray (I neglected to ask for his first name) - who took us through the whole process of making ceramics and showed us the artists at work in the studio. We also got a chance to make some pottery ourselves, guided by one of the master potters. Afterwards we were led into the showroom where we were able to buy some of he ceramics. My wife and I genuinely wanted to buy something from the collection, but we couldn't decide on what, so we ended up regretfully deciding to just let it go. In the end we spent more that 1.5 hours there. Needless to say Mr Guray was very informative and attentive to our questions; you can tell that he's very passionate about what he does. The museum and the pieces in the collection are beautiful and absolutely stunning. The Guray Museum is definitely well worth a visit.

I visited this museum in October 2019 with a tour and had a fantastic experience. The museum was innovated (cut into the rock) and interesting. The opportunity to see a potter at work and try it out was a great experience. Watching the artisans doing hand-painting and showing the exquisite detailed effort made me appreciate the pieces for sale in the store. I bought a beautiful plate despite being worried that it would not survive being carried home as well as several smaller items. I was reassured that if the plate broke in their packaging, they would send me a replacement -- even overseas. Everything survived the trip home except for the lovely plate. I was so sad at the loss of the beautiful item and felt the memory was tarnished. However, as promised, they sent me a replacement free of charge. I am so grateful to have this piece hanging in my house and it remains a warm and cherished memory.
