VERY INFORMATIVE

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!

The Iron Bridge itself is a work of genius its true and the leaps in bridgemaking stemmed from this. But to say it was the birthplace of the industrial revolution is a tad far fetched.

Very good intro to the Iron Industry in Ironbridge - the Switch from charcoal to coke by Abraham Darby which allowed the mass-production of iron. Very good exhibition with artifacts and videos - and upstairs from that an exhibition of... More
