Situated in Huangpu, Tongchuan City, the Yaozhou Kiln Museum is China’s largest ancient kiln theme museum and has both artifact displays and ancient porcelain making simulations. The museum holds over 300,000 artifacts and specimens, most of which were from the ancient

Yaozhou Kiln. The kiln was first set up in the Tang Dynasty and became one of the Big Six Kilns in the Song Dynasty. It was known as the “champion of the northern celadon with carved patterns.” It was later deserted during the end of the Yuan Dynasty and the beginning of the Ming Dynasty, leaving behind it a history of over 800 years.
