“Amazing fun family time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

We purchased a tour and painting through groupon. My four children ages 10,7,5 and 9 months really enjoyed the tour. It was educational and fun. The children talked about it the rest of the day to anyone who would listen. As a mother I was very impressed at the companys use of local products and lack of use of chemicals. Louisville stoneware is a must do for all ages.

We love hearing that "the children talked about it the rest of the day to anyone who would listen." That means they were engaged -- and those are the best kinds of tour attendees to have!

Please consider posting a picture of the pieces the kids painted.

“Good for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

Arrived today to paint our own pottery. We used a Groupon otherwise regular prices are a bit expensive. They will mail our pottery to us for an additional fee. Fun for my 6 year old daughter.

“Interesting place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Louisville stoneware is a very interesting place to visit. They have a wide selection of stoneware items. You can see the pottery made, paint your own, and special order personalized pieces . They also have gift registry. My daughter had a bridal registry there and all was handled very professionally. Truly a special kentucky place to visit!

“Iconic Louisville attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

My husband and I enjoyed our visit here so much. We even did the paint-your-own pottery activity and it was a blast -- we use the coffee mugs that we painted all of the time and they always bring back a great memory. The stoneware for sale is beautiful. Highly enjoyable experience!
