The Dudson Museum is based in Hanley forming part of The Dudson Centre which was created in 1999 when the original Dudson Factory, dating back to 1809, was regenerated by a range of private and public sector partners.
Uniquely, the museum is housed in an atmospheric Grade ll listed bottle oven and by stepping through the oven door you will be immersed in the heritage of the iconic Dudson brand, which continued to produce ceramic tableware until 2019. A unique, family business with a proud tradition of quality and a fascinating history.
Individuals, families, groups and school parties are always welcome. A typical visit takes just under an hour, but the pottery enthusiast will want to linger to soak up all the stunning collection has to offer!
There is also a well-stocked gift shop selling books and souvenirs and a café on site. With free entry and helpful, friendly staff, the museum is a must-see.
