There are 10 museums and attractions in Ironbridge Gorge. I would recommend that you buy a passport and take your time visiting them. We spread our visits over 2 days. Our favourites were the Blists Hill Victorian Town and the Tile Museum. The museums are quite spread out but one car park ticket serves all of them and a bus... More

We visited Blists Hill last year and took advantage of the annual passport. Today we visited the tar tunnel and the China museum. Not earth shattering but still moderately interesting. Worth a look.

A very pleasant local area however there isn't a huge amount to do. Lots of small windy roads so getting in and out can be difficult at peak times during the day.

This is one of many of the museums worth visiting in the area. An ideal place to take the children to in order to see how life has changed over the years. Of course, adults are equally fascinated. Helpful guides with an outstanding knowledge of the times.

sat nav took us to the wrong place - we wanted to go to Blists hill but ended up in Coalbrookdale - but we had the most amazing bus ride on the gorge connect bus which linked all the gorge museums - they deserve a medal for driving so fast on such narrow roads - never dangerous mind.

Ironbridge is a beautiful little place...much quieter, peaceful and tranquil than I imagined. Well worth a visit

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to these museums, but we unfortunately didn't have time in 2 days to visit as many as we would have liked so will have to go back sometime in the future. There is something of interest for everyone. The annual pass is good value as we can go back again anytime to visit the museums... More

We spent a day and a half at the Gorge Museums. My daughter, Grandson (14) and myself. We all enjoyed it very much. with the exception of Broseley Pipe Works & Darby Houses all the sites were visited. My daughter & I enjoyed all the places that we visited as everything was different. The 14 year old was a bit... More
