The passport ticket for all 10 attractions makes this good value for money despite the fact that I felt one or two of the museums were a little disappointing. We went in half term and were a little surprised that there wasn't more going on. I thought the tile museum was particularly interesting. The cafes where available were all good... More

So many varied and interesting locations in such a small area, the passport ticket is a must. The Jackfield Tile Museum is stunning. Its not cheap but it must cost a fortune to provide these historical insights.

With the passport good value for money. This lasts for a whole year so it's not really expensive, my wife and I have used the pass more than once

We visited in January as a family. It was expensive to enter but not crowded for a Saturday. There was sufficient parking close to the entrance but this was at an additional charge. There was a wide variety of shops and demonstrations throughout the exhibit and these were generally good. We ate above the pub which is a table service... More

We thought the exterior of these buildings was attractive. The history was interesting but overall we thought that it was too expensive -- an there is parking to be paid on top of the entry costs. They have geared things towards education and children which is good.

Spent 5 days here, so much to see, so interesting. Needed more time! Even though it was winter we had lovely walks. All the attractions were quiet which I think enhanced our experience.

Not the best of value compared to other museums in the Shropshire area. All over rather quickly. The video was interesting and the scaled model of the Gorge dating back to the late 18th century was excellent - it put things in context. Overall, the museum gives a good introduction to the history and development of the Gorge.

We are frequent visitors to Blists Hill and Enginuity for the kids. Its not far from where we live and makes a cheap day out as we have the annual pass. There is something in Ironbridge for everyone. Many of the car parks are also covered by one entry fee. The kids find most of the museums surprisingly interesting. There... More
