Well worth a visit

Easy parking for this and a very different museum with lots of interesting facts. Part closed for refurbishment. Not the best of the Ironbridge museums.

Very poor compared to the other museums. Little to see, poorly presented, indifferent staff. Lots of steep stairs, lots of the outdoor areas were empty, very little information. Combine this with the difficulty of travelling here AND having to pay for the car park and it is less than impressing. Only good bit was that even though the YMCA café... More

There are 10 museums in total. It is advisable to get a "passport" from the Museum of the Gorge. This is a one off payment and gets you into all the museums and saves money.

Our U3A visited the Iron bridge Museums, all very accessible and interesting. An area where you need to allow yourself plenty of time to see all the variety of exhibits available.

Very little on display, only thing of interest was model of gorge as it was 200 odd years ago. Definitely in dire need of some exhibits

The Museum on The Gorge is very informative and well worth a visit, The model of the complete gorge is excellent. The short film is worth watching.

We stayed in the area for 2 nights and bought the family pass for £68. It was educational, interesting, fun & over all fantastic value. We really needed another day to fit it all in!
