The creation of this tourist attraction was apparently a major project by the local tourism board. The neighborhood of Triana used to be a major ceramic producing area. This museum seeks to rekindle interest in that history by developing archaeological, anthropological and architectural exhibits. In other words the museum cleverly relates the development of the ceramic industry here to the development of the neighborhood. The permanent exhibition is on one floor and the documentation and interpretation center is on the Upper Floor. And of course they have a lovely collection of ceramics from a wide period of history. There are also of photographs of the old ceramics factories.

I really enjoyed my visit! Very interesting, I loved watching the videos and listening to the stories of those who worked in the industry. It makes you think more about the history, and workmanship that went into the old tiles that you see around the area.
Nicely done museum explaining the ceramic process. The addition done to the old factory to turn it into a museum stands out distinctively showing the temporal change in the contemporary architecture for both the eras.
Very nice museum which includes history and explanations about the ceramic manufacturing, as well as displays of great past and contemporary realizations. The time to visit is between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how much we read from the explanations.
Very interesting and well worth the (low) entrance charge
Nice building, self guided tour through it, would be a good place to have a cafe for its visitors ;)
