I visited the TeaPot Museum. Ms. Dent (96 yrs young) told us everything we ever wanted to know about them and more. You will NEVER see another collection like this anywhere.

The Trenton Teapot collection is great, displayed to see all sides of the porcelain pots. Check with the police department if the building is licked!
