Some very interesting and cool pottery- mostly crocks with very interesting history. Not for little kids but older might appreciate.

I have some Red Wing pottery pieces so this was of interest to me. I've never seen so much pottery in one place! A very impressive collection.

Viewing the pottery which was made in Red Wing, one could remember placing one's feet under mother's kitchen table when one's legs weren't long enough to reach the floor. Interesting presentation of this once thriving business.

i was born and raised in Red Wing, and recently returned for a visit. The pottery museum is amazing! I'm not a full-fledged collector, but the scope and variety of the museum displays are truly amazing!

Many pottery items to look at. A wide variety of different types and styles. Wished the store would have had more items available. I would have liked to leave with an item or two.

Small parts of it are. You would not get a sense of the whole experience. You may want to check to see if they have an elevator though, we didn't notice any but that doesn't there isn't one.
