More than 6,000 vintage pieces of artisan-crafted stoneware, art pottery, dinnerware & folk art bring the story of historic Red Wing to life in dozens of exhibits covering 13,000 square feet.
Currently on view: "The Red Wing Saloon:"
This exhibit shows what a pre-prohibition saloon looked like prior to January 16, 1920 when the 18th Amendment was passed. Red Wing produced many liquor advertising stoneware jugs for sellers - in one month alone in 1910 the pottery shipped more than 6400.
In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, we have moved our gift store to our meeting room. This allows us a bigger retail space and better social distancing. We have some great Red Wing pieces, as well as items from Hull, Dryden, Trenton, Royal Haeger, and other potteries. We are open Tuesday-Sunday 10AM - 3PM.
The Pottery Museum is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization and operates entirely on donated funds.
