The Kellinghusen town museum is dedicated to the important ceramics tradition of the town. The emphasis of the collections is put on the Kellinghusen faÃ¯ence, which was produced in the 18th and 19th century. Six workshops can be traced in Kellinghusen between 1765 and 1860. The Kellinghusen faÃ¯ence especially became famous with plates that show a floral pattern on a bright yellow rim and a colourful bunch of flowers in the centre. In addition to those characteristic objects of the Kellinghusen faÃ¯ence series the museum presents selected individual pieces as well.Changing exhibitions on arts and crafts and cultural history are shown on the gallery of the museum.
