This was one of the first museums, in the world, to embrace the 'working museum' concept, and was a major pioneer in UK museums.
Forty years on, and as busy as ever, Gladstone Working Pottery Museum is a major visitor attraction in the UK. It is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of The Potteries.
A museum for all of the Potteries, not a just one Potbank.
Unique with its 5 bottle ovens and cobbled yard. Steam engine and sliphouse, saggar making shop, tile gallery, toilet gallery, potters shops, colour gallery, mould store, and Victorian offices.
