Breathtaking views, quaint town and time passes in a flash. The Ironbridge is a feat of engineering and shows how big a part iron played in our heritage. The pottery museum was beautiful with lots of items to purchase, on the day I visited there was a chap letting kids and adults alike get up close and touchy feely with... More

The iron bridge gorge museums collectively are well worth a visit, a one entry passport can be purchased which gives you entry to a great variety of attractions. You would need to allow a good deal of time to visit Blitts Hill and the iron museum both of these are excellent and worth the entry fee on a pay on... More

We visited the museums over 2 days. We bought a family passport which after using some tesco vouchers cost us £18. Parking was plentiful and the £1.50 charge was transferable between all the museums car parks, so good value. We visited Enginuity, which the children loved, lots of hands on activities, and kept them occupied for about 90 mins. The... More

There is so much to see and learn here and an annual passport ticket is great value even if you only visit each museum once.

Only visited the main Blist Hill town but it was a fascinating experience looking at how life would have been in a whole community in the period covered. Every facet of life is explorable as you can speak with all the people and they don't provide a lecture...they talk back and have a conversation so the more you ask the... More

Went today and bought the passport for £27.50 so entrance to all 10 Ironbridge Museums for a whole year, unlimited. Blists Hill Victorian Town is definitely a cut above the rest. It's worth it just to go there. As for the other museums, not to our taste. Of course there's the museum of iron and the Coalport China museum but... More

We thought the one ticket for all museums was good value. We particularly liked the tile museum, the building was so beautiful and had not been spoilt

We decided to do this 'off the cuff' with 2 young kids(3 and 5). The weather was shocking but it was a fantastic day. We got a 2 for 1 voucher for the adult passports and then paid £16.50 for the 5 year old.(under 5s are free). Cost us £44 for a years worth of visits. We only visited the... More

Three adults and four children spent an amazing day in the victorian village at Ironbridge. It would take ages to write about everything we experienced during our stay. Visiting the many various workshops and watching craftsmen at work was very interesting and for the kids, educational. Candle maker, blacksmith, woodturner and stone mason are a few of the crafts on... More

So much to see that we didn't even manage it all in 3 days. Be selective so you get to see what really interests you. We did the Village, Enginuity, Museum of Iron and the Darby Houses. It can all be done by the local buses if you are staying in Ironbridge. Very enjoyable.
