Next to a beautiful garden with a great view from the entrance. Worth stopping by if you’re in the area but perhaps not, as in our case, a destination visit. We found it rather disappointing, sad almost - more storage behind glass than a museum....More

In the lower Caltagirone is a fairly small museum of Ceramics that is well organized and easily doable in an hour or so. It sits in the city gardens which are a green respite for the dun colored city. The descriptions are only in Italian...More

The museum is a bit trifled, but very interesting as well. (The City of Caltagirone is a also bit trifled, but interesting!).

This museum partly contextualises the work you see in the tourist shops in the city. I enjoyed this museum but I do think it needs more explanation and the entrance and toilets need a good refurbishment. The price of entry is not high and a...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
