The Gladstone Pottery Museum is a working museum of a medium sized pottery, typical of those once common in the North Staffordshire area from the time of the industrial revolution in the 18th century to the mid 20th century. It is an Anchor Point of ERIH, The European Route of Industrial Heritage.
The Museum holds annual events from Halloween ghosts walks and tours, to Christmas Carol Concerts and seasonal festivals. It also caters for children with Egg Easter Hunts and Summer Pottery workshops. In the last few years, the Museum has opened ''Flushed with Pride'' a toilet exhibition featuring a Japanese imported toilet, and toilets dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries.
