Did you know Salford Museum & Art Gallery is home to the National Archive of Pilkington’s Lancastrian Pottery and Tiles?

We house the largest collection of the work of the famous North West company – everything from their beloved ornate tiles to the Lustre ware sold at Tiffany’s in New York!

To celebrate this wonderful collection, we’re putting on a range of events.
