The Dudson Museum is based in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, forming part of The Dudson Centre which was created in 1999 when the original Dudson Factory site, which dates 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, on 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.
We are always pleased to welcome individuals, families, groups and school parties. 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 for any visitor to Stoke-on-Trent.
