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!

We travelled an extra couple of hours to see this collection, but couldn't get in because a baby shower was scheduled. We peeked in through the door and saw a few of the teapots in the large glass display cases. This museum is located in the municipal building right next to the police department. Extremely easy to miss. Wish we... More

I have visited the Trenton Teapot Museum several times and I enjoy it every time I go. It is a great place to take out of town visitors, mostly women, who enjoy antiques.

This is the world's largest collection of antique porcelain veilleuses-theieres or night light teapots. All in fantastic condition! We had heard about the Trenton Tea Pot Museum since we moved to Jackson, TN a few years back, so today was the day we decided to visit it. Parking is no problem on this small town's streets. We parked right in... More

Located in Trenton, TN about 30 minutes north of Jackson (about a 3 hour drive from Nashville, depending on traffic) this unique free museum was a delight. It's located in the same building as the police and fire department, so the museum is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day (I wonder if people show up at 3... More

I had heard of the Teapot Festival in Trenton, TN for many years and finally had the opportunity to visit. We were there on the Saturday of the Grand Parade. Parade lasted about 2 hours. Had a lot of bands and of course politicians. Some of the floats were very pretty, just not many in it. Mostly the floats held... More

Most were collected from Europe and were made between 1750 and 1860. They were the gift of Dr. Frederick C. Freed who grew up in Trenton and practiced medicine mostly in New York City. A patient brought Dr. Freed his first teapot,... More

The place is not as exciting as it sounds. (Sarcasm) You may love it if you have a fetish for teapots.
