There is a short film presentation at various times depending on your language which is informative as to processes and history of pottery. The tour also includes the workshop where employees...

A wonderful place to visit. The only Pottery where they hand paint the famous Delt designs. Some exquisite displays. Free Coffee too so a bonus.

It's a factory which has a part of it turned into a museum. There's a shop selling products of the factory (by blue and white porcelain) at the end of the exhibition and there is a café for the visitors inside the building. The exhibition in particular is not of great importance, interest and value. Products sold are extremely expensive.
