A large collection of ceramics is displayed, showing a range of styles from the work of William Cookworthy and Plymouth Porcelain, to the 20th-century studio pottery of Bernard Leach. Works by Bernard Forrester, Ewen Henderson and Mary Rogers are also on display.

Plymouth programmes a range of temporary exhibitions throughout the year, alongside displays of its permanent collection which rotate on an annual basis.

Guest editor’s note:
The Museum makes me think of three things: a live bees’ nest with the bees entering through a hole in the outside wall — I heard kids got stung and the nest was removed; the mummified Egyptian — a recurring nightmare in 1988; and the most recent memory, a Young British Artist’s show in 2002 when I was at Art College. It blew my mind and I put my A level MC Escher book aside for a Sensation catalogue.
