We are living in uncertain times. In an effort to stem the spread of coronavirus, Gov. Walz has issued "Stay Home, Minnesota," a shelter in place order. Public gathering spaces, like museums, are closed until May 1, 2020. Pottery Museum of Red Wing, therefore, is closed to the public. Staff will continue to work on projects on- and off-site. You can call 651.327.2220 to reach us. If we are working at home, you can call Nancy's work cell number, 651.764.4902, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org . You can reach Char at her work cell number, 651.764.4901, or by email at email@example.com . Please stay safe and take care of yourselves, your families, and your neighbors as you can. We will update this message as necessary.
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.
Join us at the Isle Hotel Casino for fun, friendship, and sales! Visit us at the show and sale on Saturday. We will be out and about throughout the get-together and look forward to seeing you in Bettendorf!
