Northern Clay Studio in Minneapolis would be a good stop.
Archie Bray Foundation in Helena (Interstate 15). The grounds are open, many of the clay residents don't mind people coming through,
and the Red Lodge Clay Center in Red Lodge 40 miles south of I 90 in central Montana This has active residents working.
Clay Studio in Missoula Montana I 90 across the divide. In Great Falls there is the Paris Gibson Square Art Center.
If you go into Canada visit Medicine Hat's Medalta Clay center..residents there. The Banff Center for Creative Arts in Banff, Alberta also interesting studios.
A more southern route if you go through Chicago, Lill Street Gallery and studios
The Bemis Foundation in Omaha
I think you would need to contact individual potters in you wanted to "drop in" on private studios.
You could check the Buyers Guide from Ceramics Monthly and look up places that offer studio spaces and classes.
If you are further south, there is Anderson Ranch in Aspen and Santa Fe Clay in Santa Fe where there is the Folk Arts museum too. If near Flagstaff, Az you could visit the ASU wood kilns on campus. Another campus with wood kilns is Logan Utah with Gary Neely.
