Next to a beautiful garden with a great view from the entrance. Worth stopping by if you’re in the area but perhaps not, as in our case, a destination visit. We found it rather disappointing, sad almost - more storage behind glass than a museum....More

In the lower Caltagirone is a fairly small museum of Ceramics that is well organized and easily doable in an hour or so. It sits in the city gardens which are a green respite for the dun colored city. The descriptions are only in Italian...More

I would not consider this museum an essential destination unless you have a strong interest in ceramics and a lot of knowledge about them. English speakers get a little booklet that provides some basic explanation of the most important objects. The collection is extensive and...More

The museum is a bit trifled, but very interesting as well. (The City of Caltagirone is a also bit trifled, but interesting!).

There are a lot of ceramic museums in Sicily. This one has the largest variety of pieces. I would highly recommend.

The Museo Regionale della Ceramica is perfect for everybody who likes to look into the history of ceramics of this "city of ceramics", Caltagirone. It is a museum for everybody, not just for the "heavy" ceramics lover.

The entrance was hard to find. At the main street the entrance was closed but there was not indicated that the main entrance was at the Giardino pubblico. In the museum a lot of things were to see, but without any explanation. a pity

The city seems to have been a center of ceramic manufacture for centuries and most visitors -- like me -- will probably confine themselves to this feature of the city. The Ceramics Museum has an excellent collection of examples, some going back many centuries. Every...More
