“A must for all Worcester porcelain enthusiasts”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

For the admission you get an audio tour thrown in. Allow at least an hour and a half for your visit - the largest collection of Worcester anywhere, from the earliest pieces to the present day. Great shop with large selection of Worcester porcelain (including antique pieces) as well as books. A great morning out.

“Great visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

As a lover of Worcester Porcelain I was looking forward to my visit. The Receptionist was very helpful and gave us both an audio guide which was excellent. There was a painter demonstrating his craft which was amazing. The exhibits were gorgeous and well presented. It is a lot to take in all in one visit if you are an enthusiast but there was a film show so you could put your feet up for a short while.
You also get a ticket which enables you to a free visit within 12 months. I will be back!

“Disabled accessible”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This is a really interesting museum and completely disabled friendly. The staff are helpful and the audio guide is excellent. Allow a couple of hours at least. The only problem is that they have no cafe. We had decided to have lunch there like we did at the Wedgewood museum so by the time we left we were famished. There is a cafe around the corner and the Cathedral has a nice tea room but it was raining!

“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
