This place is staffed by enthusiastic knowledgeable men who volunteer as tour guides. They were entertaining and quite knowledgeable about the history of pottery in the area as well as the pieces located there in their museum.

This was our second visit. It’s amazing to see all the Red Wing pottery pieces that were made and now put together in these displays. Our guide (volunteer) was knowledgeable and a collector himself.
