The Spode Works Visitor Centre is a two-year exhibition based at the former Spode factory. Since the closure of the Spode factory, the Spode Museum Trust's collection has been in storage. The visitor centre tells the stories of the Spode factory, the workers, the everyday and amazing things they made, and showcases a small part of the collection of the Spode Museum Trust. The exhibition has films, images, interactive displays, ceramic items and other objects from the collection. Various events and activities take place and most Friday and Saturday mornings there is a demonstrator in the gallery.
