I would not consider this museum an essential destination unless you have a strong interest in ceramics and a lot of knowledge about them. English speakers get a little booklet that provides some basic explanation of the most important objects. The collection is extensive and...More

The Museo Regionale della Ceramica is perfect for everybody who likes to look into the history of ceramics of this "city of ceramics", Caltagirone. It is a museum for everybody, not just for the "heavy" ceramics lover.

The entrance was hard to find. At the main street the entrance was closed but there was not indicated that the main entrance was at the Giardino pubblico. In the museum a lot of things were to see, but without any explanation. a pity
