The museum is not huge but has some nice pieces. It combines a historical look at the local pottery industry with some newer pieces by modern artists.

Amazing building! The architecture was stunning, as well as the art. A little bit of something for everyone. Many different art styles, painting, pottery, photography, and more. There was a live class going on while we were visiting, the instructor seemed enthusiastic and helpful.
