Good for kids who want to play and learn. We don't have kids so not so much there for us to look at but still interesting.

We were in Ironbridge for a family celebration and found the area and village an absolute charm. Blitz Hill farm was our day one port of call and was brilliant, worth every penny and adults and our party of kids loved it. Day 2 and my sisters children alluded to the fact that they would like to see the Enginuity... More

one of the good museums in the iron bridge gorge and part of the season ticket package. a must see part of your tour of the area and don't forget your car park at one of the museums is valid all day in the other car parks.

This is a really good day out for any family with inquisitive kids who like to get hands on. The displays are pretty much all interactive, and very well designed to get kids interested in engineering without knowing that they're learning. We had three generations of the family engrossed for hours. The dam/river/water supply exhibit was particularly interesting and entertaining.... More

We have brought a passport for 12 months and can visit 10 museums as many times as we like within 12 months. Brilliant as it's indoors and there are lots of activities for children to do and explore. It sets their minds alight and understand how different things work and connect together. They have things for all age groups and... More

Truely interactive experiance. Lots of hands on things to do, build a bridge, generate electricity using water, see if you can move a 15ton steam engine by yourself the list is endless.....

No doubt it's a bit unfair to compare a place like this with the national museums, but there isn't really enough here to justify the admission fee. What there is, as other reviewers have remarked, is not in the best of shape. Having said that, the children did enjoy it. The Iron Museum next door is better presented and quite... More

A bit like the launch pad at London's science museum but far less traumatic (less crowded, fewer sharp elbows etc). Alongside the Iron Museum (building great, exhibits ok but worth popping in) and the Darby houses so can combine with other museums on your passport.

We visited Enginuity for a family wedding. It was a 'different' location but all aspects for a wedding were catered for. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. Unfortunately we did not visit the museum but I am sure it would be a delightful and informative visit.
