In 1981, Ilse Schütz, a tourist who fell in love with Agost, founded the Museu de Cantereria in a former pottery factory dating from the early 20th century The building was refurbished and began its new life as a public institution in 2016. The museum holds more than 4,500 domestic objects that have gradually been displaced by the advent of plastic; they are mainly ceramic pieces. The original factory facilities, such as the Arabic ovens, the clay decanting ponds and the workshop have been lovingly preserved to provide a fascinating insight into the manufacturing process.

In addition, they organise a programme of activities that take us back to different historical periods with artisan culture as the common thread. Visits to the museum can finish in the shop, where it is possible to buy traditional white-clay ceramics, as well as local pottery. There are also pottery wheel workshops and demonstrations.
