Really well put together brilliant informative and entertaining at the same time. An insight into our history and the subsequent development of iron and industry in the developing world, it all started here. And the pottery was very good too.

Some of the exhibits and historical facts are repeated in a couple of the museums but there was enough interesting stuff here to make the visit worthwhile. We spent just over an hour wandering through this museum and it has the benefit of being on the same site as Enginuity, so you can be occupied for a good couple of... More

Authentic and well worth the visit and good value for money. First time in the area and loved it. Disappointed in local hotel and should have used local B&B. Cheaper and cleaner.

Ironbridge and it's museums really take you back to the history surrounding the area, the industries at the time and the preservation of the locality. Well worth a visit.

Interesting and historical. You are greeted by friendly staff and can pay for individual museums, or for a yearly pass, which you can use as many times as you like during the year. As there are numerous museums it was well worth paying for the yearly pass. Be a ware thou, that you will need money throughout the visit. So... More

Such an interesting day out! Make sure you bring extra cash for fish and chips, flap jack from the bakery, sweets and real ale/ ginger beer and pop along for a sing song in the pub! See the pigs, chickens and the old fashioned fun fair. Great day out for all. Buy a passport and return more than once for... More

We took one of the whole year passes to give us access to everything. We enjoyed the Victorian Village the most, spending a good half a day here, and could have done more. Kids liked it as well (6 & 10). However I found at every opportunity there was a chance to spend more money, be it buying bread, chips,... More

We visited the Victorian village, spending 3 hours there and then went on to the Coalport china museum. I preferred that one just because I love the china! It was interesting to see how the china was made and to walk inside the huge kilns were the china was fired. both this one and the victorian village had very good... More
