The Ceramics museum

The magnificent Renaissance-era staircase leads to the Ceramics Museum on the first floor. Split into several rooms, this museum helps visitors understand how ceramics and pottery in Vallauris developed through its key periods.
A journey back through time, starting in the ancient kitchen once used by the Lérins monks and now home to a collection of utilitarian pottery made in Vallauris from Antiquity to the 1920s. The exhibition jumps forward to the 1950s (Vallauris’ golden age) and its artistic ceramics, and closes with a collection of pure, pared-back, contemporary pieces crafted by designers. More than just a style, ceramics in Vallauris are infused with passionate, unparalleled expertise and the generosity of our artists and craftmens.
