Nice place to visit if you have a lot of time in Jingdezhen, much smaller in comparison to GuYao the main Ancient Kiln site on the west side of town. This site (YuYao) has beautiful wood pagagoda that you can climb up with a great view of the city center, it also has an interesting museum that has a good selection of the history of porcelain pieces in China, however there is not too much english. At the base of the pagoda they have a miniature scale version of the ancient porcelain production methods which is very interesting to see from a birds eye view.

I had high expectations for this museum, in part because some of the most exquisite porcelain ever made was produced on these grounds but also because, with a world class entrance fee of RMB95, I anticipated a world class museum. Instead what we found were nicely kept grounds and buildings which had more space committed to selling porcelain than explaining it or showing how it was made. We did see several potters trimming and decorating and one kiln was active, but the overwhelming impression was one of commerce rather than education.

There are many opportunities to buy very high quality (high priced) porcelain items at the museum, and a great opportunity to see the potters still performing their craft, but the "ancient" kilns that are the centerpieces of this world heritage site were rebuilt in the last decade, so it's hard to get a feel for what it was like hundreds of years ago. There is also a lack of interesting ancient pottery on display. Still worth it if you are interested in the pottery process, but items on display don't rival the British Museum or the (NYC) Met.

I believe this "site" is often overlooked by people traveling to jingdezhen. Not only is it a must see there are also other sites to visit in the area. Spend the day, bring a lunch, walk the pond area, or better yet set an appointment with the "international Ceramic exchange" at Jingdezhen college (a 10 minute walk), and try making your own pot, or doing your own painting. Contact the college for times and cost. This site is the epicenter of where the whole thing started. Every tourist should visit here, if only an hour. You can also visit the area called "xindu" where the caliber of artists and craftsman out shine all other "hyped" areas of the city. This area, like "the old factory" area is the real China.. No Disney type area like the sculpture factory, based on trinkets and junk. This area is far superior in talent. I suggest you visit.

If you are interested in handmade ceramics, this is definitely a must go to place. You will see the artists that have been doing this for 50+ years at work. Some of the artists are hand throwing the ceramic pieces and some are painting the pieces. You can view the ancient kilns and take pictures. You can also purchase the pieces either at the individual booths or in the gift shop. These items are more expensive since they are individually made, but it makes them more special. You can bargain here.
