This little attraction offers the vistor an insight into the Gorge but it needs more as a fee charging attraction. I suggest it should be a free attraction with tourist information being part of it...but I guess someone has to pay for the building and maintenance.

Have been here several times this last year using an annual passport. As there is too much to see and take in on one trip it makes such sense to do it in several trips. Today we went to the tile museum, very few people there, such a shame. The exhibition was very well set out with interesting displays of... More

We knew it was there. We knew it wasn't that far from where we live (2 hours ish). We decided to make a weekend of it and were so pleased. It's humbling to see / learn what developed here - it's not a UNESCO World Heritage site for no reason. If you're reading this you're interested - GO.

An absolute must do if your visiting Ironbridge. We bought a pass which you could use to get in all the museums. A bargain at 27 quid for the year. Definitely will be back for another visit

There are 10 sites to visit,and they all bring something different. There is so much history, from the victorians to abraham darby. The staff are friendly at every site. It's fun for all ages,especially blists hill with their victorian fairground and people dressed in period costume

Great day out on the pass and remember if you are over 60 you get a concession. The museums are all well presented and ironbridge has some lovely coffee shops and nice shops which broke up the day.

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
