    Very nice Museum, but a bit small and with little change in exhibitions. There are a few quality HB parts, but nothing exceptional.

    An original Museum which proves that pottery is an art. A learning path very clear and informative. Friendly staff.

    This museum shows a beautiful collection of very attractive earthenware, but also explains some technical and historical aspects of manufacturing of earthenware.
