Overview

Situated a few kilometres from Florence, this museum records the production of majolica and ceramics by the Manifattura di Doccia from its foundation in 1737 up to the second half of the 20th century. The museum houses some 7000 pieces, not only tableware such as tea and coffee pots but also more unusual things such as barber's basins, statues, and church furnishings. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions in the Sala del Fondatore on the ground floor and monthly courses on ceramic painting. You can pay for a guided tour but it must be pre-booked. There is a bookshop and a ceramics shop at the entrance. The 'Museo delle Terre', on the ground floor, is also of interest. The multicoloured slips and clays which are used for the production and decoration of the ceramics are shown here. The museum is closed on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
