Museum Information

Welcome to Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum

Aichi prefecture is one of the leading pottery industry places, and some well-known old kiln sites such as Sanage, Seto, Atsumi and Tokoname are there. Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum was founded in 1978, the year of prefectural centennial, at a hillside of Seto-city. Nowadays our museum has a rich collection of world-wide pottery works, and plans five special exhibitions every year. Adding to that, the number of donations, which are not only various pottery works but additional facilities such as Tea House “Tosui-an”, is increasing year by year. With those great supports from local citizens, our museum is now aiming to be much more unique pottery-museum for everyone who wants to learn and play with both pottery and clay.
