Who we are

For a unique experience and a very warm welcome, the stunning Wedgwood Museum is the place to visit - whether you just like looking at beautiful objects or have a specialist interest.

We are the home of one of the most interesting ceramic collections in the world.  Our galleries tell the story of Josiah Wedgwood, his family, and the company he founded two-and-a-half centuries ago.

We are a designated collection holder, meaning the collection we care for has been designated by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council as being of outstanding national importance and our archives are recognised by UNESCO Memory of the World Programme. Why not come along and visit us and see why.
