Free Museum Entry
A visit to World of Wedgwood isn’t complete without seeing the V&A Collection at World of Wedgwood (formerly the Wedgwood Museum) - one of the finest collections of ceramics in the world. Explore 260 years of ground-breaking design and production and discover the story of Josiah Wedgwood and his lasting influence on the industry and society.
Younger visitors can take the Pottery Spotters trail and discover another side to the Collection. There’s a prize for every completed activity sheet, collect your free trail sheet from reception.
We are a designated Collection holder, meaning the Collection we care for has been designated by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council as being of outstanding national importance and our archives are recognised by UNESCO Memory of the World Programme.
There are 3,000 objects on display in the galleries including iconic pieces from every period of production. The complete Collection contains 8,000 pieces of historic ceramics, more than 75,000 manuscripts and items of correspondence and a fine art collection including works by Stubbs, Romney and Reynolds which are on display.
Free Collection entry for everyone, every day. Collect your ticket from reception when you arrive.
Special exhibitions in the Collection atrium throughout the year, visit our event pages for details of the current exhibition.
