About this activity

You and your family slightly potty? Well you will feel right at home!

The American Museum of Ceramic Arts is a fascinating collection of ceramics from across all countries and all cultures, dating right back from ancient times (thats a really long time ago!) right through to today.

Their aim is to educate a deeper understanding of cultural values and traditions upheld by those who created such beautiful artefacts. 

The museum constantly have rotating exhibitions and specific collections come through, so make sure you keep an eye on dates.

For those little ones in the family who love getting their hands dirty with clay, art, and creativity, they hold Family Days where, with each of the exhibitions, children and families can get very hands on as they learn about clay and art.

The museum are also very dedicated to education and offer a range of educational, informative and interesting tours for school groups.  Why sit in a classroom when you can walk around and get up close with history!?

For those ceramic artists, and community locals who want to participate more in art and clay, the Ceramics Studio (with different opening hours to the museum) is a great place to learn and take classes on history, techniques and the creative process.
