The grounds of this museum are outstanding, the scenery is beautiful and it is easy to spend half the day walking around exploring the history of ceramics in China. There are good signs in English which describe the different stages / steps in the production process which are very informative. There is also an area where you can see master... More

Worth staying for a few hours to stroll around. Most of it is outside so save this activity for a sunny day, or bring an umbrella.

We spent several hours at this fantastic working museum, learning about the history of ceramics in China and watching potters and craftspeople at work. Each workshop displayed works in the styles of the different dynasties, demonstrating processes and intricate decorating. The ceramic displays (although not historic) were out of this world!

If you visit in the summer, be prepared to sweat a lot! The workers are in shaded areas, however, if you are not used to the heat and humidity it is a challenge to keep going. There is a lot to see and you can purchase items on the premises.

We heard from our friends that this is a 'must see' in China. We found it fascinating and beautiful. The history and artistry are wonderful. This is a highly recommended place to visit.

Jingdezhen WAS the place for Chinese ceramic. Some of the kilns were making ceramics only for the Royalty. Thus accorded the name: "IMPERIAL KILNS". The quality was superb, so were the designs. However, these are the bygone era. Present days the Jingdezhen kilns have to compete with many other kilns in other provinces of China; as there is no more... More

There are many ceramic shops to buy gifts in. These ceramics are machine made as opposed to individually hand thrown items, therefore, are much less expensive. You can bargain here, so don't pay the price they originally quote you.

If you are into chinese ceramics, this is a must see! The museum houses a number of buildings, displaying everything from how the clay is processed, to throwing, finishing, decoration and glazing. All the classical oven-types used in the production of chinese ceramics are presented in full size, and apparently at times also fired. I´m pretty sure you will get... More

Amazing place - part museum, part workshop and part demonstration base. A huge site covering all aspects of porcelain making from ancient times to today. Includes beautiful gardens, elegant architecture and even a temple. Can see porcelain masters at work and they will let you have a go. Still using the same techniques from thousands of years ago. Ancient kilns... More
