The new Guray Underground Ceramic Museum is due to open July 2014, but when we visited in April, we were able to get a "sneak preview" and were told that other visitors will be able to do the same. It's a must see! The museum has been beautifully carved out of stone and features a fabulous exhibit of ceramics from many periods, stunningly displayed in carved out niches. The niches alone are works of art, as you can see the different layers of stone in the walls of the niches. The owner plans to use the museum for art displays and other events; we could see the set-up for a bar/restaurant? in the works. The museum is clearly a work of love and an incomparable gift to future generations.
In addition to the museum, the Ceramics "shop" allows you to see first hand the manufacturing process for their exquisite products. It's possible to buy museum quality pieces as well as more "ordinary" items that you could use in an everyday way (bowls, dishes, etc.) The quality is fantastic and discounts are offered to tour groups.
