This is a great visit for everyone. It really is a blast from the past with a real insight to victorian life. There is something for all ages. It is certainly worth a visit.

lots of museums, best value is to buy the museum passport, valid for entry into all of them. Allow more than a day or plan to revisit to see them all. Blists Hill Victorian Village, Museum of the Gorge, The Ironbridge Museum, Enginuity at Coalbrookdale, Coalport China Museum, Tile Museum to name but a few. Half-term and summer holiday activities...

Was a little disappointed in that the gorge was closed and the tile museum much of this was closed certainly no demonstrations. After paying to see all 10 museums and then finding so much closed I felt let down, Victorian village was excellent plenty to see and do and the demonstrations in the china museum were also very good and...

The main one in the group of which there are too many to visit in one day.Blists Hill has been much improved and expanded. Probably best to avoid School Holidays but there is a lot for kids to do and see. Quite steep hill and a lot of walking if you want to see it all.

The passport scheme entitles the visitor to excellent value for money access to a range of fascinating museums in this world heritage site, telling the story of the birth of the British Industrial Revolution effectively, ironically in the setting of stunning scenery. Not to be missed.

The title says it all... We used Tesco vouchers and only ended up paying buttons for a family ticket .The museums are brilliant. It's all good but I think you may want to wait until your children are older so that they appreciate it. Our two boys are 13 and 12... Perfect age. YOU MUST remember the following.... 1, Take...

We spent 4 days in Ironbridge visiting the Museums and what an interesting place! We could have spent a week there. So much history that we didn't really know. All schools should visit to give the younger generation an understanding of how we got to where we are in the world. Fantastic. You must visit even if you are not... More

I visited Ironbridge about thirty years ago and was pleased to see that the character of the place remains unchanged! The bridge itself is still there of course, and the museums have been extended and improved - but the quaintness of the town has not been spoilt. Well worth a day visit.

We were on a prolonged visit to the area and purchased an Annual Pass, giving unlimited access to the attractions. The Ironbridge Heritage Village needed four separate visits to thoroughly explore, interact and learn from the 18th and 19th century artisans as they worked. The queue for the chippie was always long and good humoured, the Banks's bitter went down... More
