“very helpful staff in a jewel of a small museum”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I visited with my disabled mother and we were made most welcome despite having baggage that was stowed for us and a folding wheelchair- there was no sense that we were in the way, even with an ex-factory get together that day, and it was an unexppected delight to meet one of the Antiques Roadshow team. All the displays with audio commentary were well presented and accessible with a wheelchair, and some of the background social history put different types of wares in their context. We may now be able to make a good attempt at dating porcelain we see in antique shops!

“Need at least an hour to appreciate it - if not more|”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Museum/shop staff are very friendly and helpful about the history and story of the porcelain. Particularly liked the audio guide given to you as allowed you to decide what you wanted information about and could get extra anecdotes if you wanted. The workmanship of items on show was fantastic - painters were artists in own right. Some pieces took weeks to complete. Didn't expect it to be so interesting before I went

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We originally went to Worcester to see the porcelain factory unfortunately it has closed down but next door is the pottery museum, there is an entrance fee but it's worth paying especially if you like history and pottery, there was a professional gilder on hand to show you how it is done, there are also guided tours via handsets, a very worth while visit, and just up the road from the Whitehouse hotel.
