  • As the name of museum says it’s a museum about ceramics! The building it’s nice to experience because the made connection between different old buildings to have more space! For hole collection is more about the typical blue Dutch ceramics and alse Chinese ceramics but there are also a few more from other corners of world! The museum it’s not that big , I guess most of the people can visit it in a few hours!
  • It's worth travelling to Leeuwarden for this museum alone. There are some breathtaking pieces of art on display. You'll learn the history and importance of earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain and how it was valued, made and traded over the centuries, and you'll see spectacular examples of pieces from all over the world. Also, M. C. Escher was born in the building. Highly recommended.
