The question most often asked of us is “What's happening to the Telling Mansion?” It’s in transformation to become the Museum of American Porcelain Art (MAPA). The museum is expected to open to the public in Summer 2018 with some previews earlier. While porcelain art continues to be produced in many parts of the world, this museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of American Porcelain Art which has all but disappeared here in the United States. MAPA will have the most extensive collection of American porcelains, archives of significant achievements and a reference library of porcelain second to none in the world.  You can visit their recently constructed website at

 Our museum was in the Caretaker’s cottage of that estate and has moved to the estate’s Gatehouse.
