At the Coalport China Museum you can see the vibrant National Collections of Coalport and Caughley.

Coalport China Museum houses vast displays of two centuries of china, and is home to National collections of Caughley and Coalport porcelain (housed in the original riverside buildings), which were made in the factory from 1796 until 1926 when production moved to the neighbouring county of Staffordshire.

Coalport was once one of the country's largest porcelain manufacturers, with a worldwide reputation for fine china. Today the award-winning museum includes a range of exhibits tracing the history of the factory and the lives and working conditions of its workforce. In the old workshops, china painting, clay modelling and china flower making take place regularly and pre-booked one-day courses are available, with expert tuition and museum entry for the enjoyment of children and adults of all ages . Visitors can purchase examples of all the fine china from the museum shop. The slip room cafe serves a variety of refreshments and has a seating capacity of 70 people. The Cafe is open on selected dates during the year.
