Stoke-on-Trent Museums is made up of two fantastic museums, The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in the City Centre, Hanley and Gladstone Pottery Museum in Longton. They each explore the unique history of The Potteries. To find out where we are please look at our visit pages, these include our opening hours, maps and travel information. Please see our visit page for details of Christmas opening times.

If you’re not sure what events we have coming up why not have a look at our event calendar, it shows when and where activities are taking place throughout the year.

The Staffordshire Hoard will be off-display from the 14 – 26 January 2016, as we are carrying out some essential ‘housekeeping’ on the collection. However, visitors will still be able to access the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia gallery in which selected items from our superb collection of Anglo-Saxon finds offer a glimpse into our ancestors’ lives.

We love to hear from our visitors so if you want to talk to us please use the contact page. We’ll make sure your query goes to the right person and you get an answer as soon as possible. If all this is a bit formal then why not follow us on Twitter or like our Facebookpages. You’ll find the most up to date information and even behind the scenes photos and information.

There’s more to come from this website so keep popping back for new information about our collections. We hope to see you soon!
