The Museum of Ceramics contains thousands of examples of pottery created in and around East Liverpool, Ohio. During the 19th and 20th centuries, East Liverpool was known as the Pottery Capital of the USA.
In 2008, the Museum of Ceramics lost almost all of its funding from the Ohio Historical Society. The Museum of Ceramics Foundation was immediately created to keep the museum open. Please consider making a donation today to enable the Museum of Ceramics to continue its work.

The Ohio Historical Society strives to meet A.D.A. requirements. However, historic structures provide challenges that make it difficult to provide complete access to all visitors. At the Museum of Ceramics we are currently partially accessible. A wheelchair lift on the southeast corner of the building provides access to the Main Level, including many exhibits, the Gift Shop, and the Theater. There is no access yet to the museum's Lower Level except via a flight of stairs. The Museum's restrooms, located on the Lower Level, are not yet accessible for people who use wheelchairs. We apologize for the ways we are inaccessible; we are working to rectify these issues.
