The Life of “Trienchen”

Trienchen is a little coffeepot. Not only does she NEVER GET LOST in our large museum, she also knows EVERYTHING about porcelain – for example, how strange-looking grey rocks can be used to make a porcelain pot.

She will show you Huge Steam Engines, loud Rumbling Ball Mills and kilns big enough for your whole class to fit inside! You don’t believe it? Come visit us and see for yourself!

Every child gets to decorate a “Trienchen” that they can take home with them.
