  • Great place to visit. Huge selection of porcelain ranging from the 1600 up to the present day. Also they have a Anglo saxon display which was really good. They have a spitfire which is a must see.
  • Oh my god that was so great place to visit cause the spitfire was pretty awesome.
  • Family favourite. Some of the exhibitions are really old now but I think that's why we like it so much.
  • A lovely collection of history that tells a great story of Stoke on Trent and England itself. The China exhibit that was there when I visited wasn't amazing but still very interesting. Considering it's free to visit, you can't go wrong
  • Lovely place, free admission with a suggested donation. Fantastic day out! Only issue is no parking on site.
