Stopped in and had a wonderful volunteer give us a tour. He pointed out the highlights and answered all our questions. Never knew there were so many different styles and things made. The history and pieces on display are very interesting to see.

This place is staffed by enthusiastic knowledgeable men who volunteer as tour guides. They were entertaining and quite knowledgeable about the history of pottery in the area as well as the pieces located there in their museum.
