Moravian Pottery & Tile Works

 Updates

While it transitions to a new management team, the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works will be closed on Monday, March 1, and will reopen with limited hours by appointment only. The Tile Works will be closed on weekends during this transitional period. Visitors will be required to wear masks or face coverings and maintain social distancing of six feet, except by children under the age of 2.

 Regular fees will be charged for tours, with no admission fee to the Tile Shop, as usual.  However, admission fees for reserved tour appointments must be pre-paid by credit card. Visitors are asked to wait outside until admitted.  For additional information or to make an appointment, call 215-348-6090.

The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, a National Historic Landmark, is maintained as a "working history" museum. Handmade tiles are still produced in a manner similar to that developed by the pottery's founder and builder, Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930). Mercer was a major proponent of the Arts & Crafts Movement in America. He directed the work at the pottery from 1898 until his death in 1930.

You may still purchase handmade reissues of tiles and mosaics made in the American Arts & Crafts tradition. The Tile Works continues to reissue many of the designs  that originally were produced here. Check our catalogue to see the many tiles we have for gifts and installations such as kitchens, fireplaces, floors and walls.

Come visit and tour our historic museum. Tours consist of a brief video followed by a self-guided walk through the facility. Visitors will see original installations, various displays, and selected aspects of current tile production.
