It's a very interesting tour, however some of the spaces are small, dark and damp. If you are claustrophobic or have very bad mold allergies find a book on it and read about it instead.

Well worth a visit! Beautiful tile -the tour is self guided and quick or lengthy depending on your desire. Incredible talent from Mr Mercer.

Stopped here yesterday with a friend. Spent time browsing in the gift shop before the self guided tour began. A 15 minute video kicks off the tour, which took us about half an hour to complete. The artisan making tiles demonstrated his craft, and cheerfully...More

This is a great tour for understanding how Henry Mercer got into the “tile” making business. The tour approach is a nice change of pace because after a short film you are left to take a self guided tour. During the tour, Crafts(men and women)...More

The tile works sits off the road and is sometimes forgotten. However, this is definitely one of the best places to visit in Doylestown. Be sure to take the tour. Brouse the tiles and take one or two home with you. Order a set and...More

A visit to Doylestown is not complete without a visit and tour of the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. The building looks like an old medieval castle made out of what else? Clay! This is still a working handcrafted ceramic tile factory made in the...More
