In the heart of the village of Saint-Quentin de la Poterie, the Museum of Mediterranean Pottery is set up in an old 16th century windmill and brings together more than 1200 earthenware objects from the last two centuries.
Its beautiful museology sets the scene for free or guided tours through the 11 rooms presenting the museum's two permanent collections, one made up of 19th century traditional pottery from Saint-Quentin-la-Poterie and another that reflects daily life in the countries along the Mediterranean.
Two rooms are devoted to the beautiful objects from the potters' workshops of St-Quentin-la-Poterie.
Each year, the Museum of Mediterranean Pottery organizes temporary exhibitions devoted to a specific workshop or region.
