Lots of different museums to see, so worth buying the pass that gives access to all and lasts for a year, if you have the time. Staff all well-informed and helpful.

We bought an annual ticket because it covered all ten museums and can be used again within the year. I think we visited about five of the museums and all were small and with lots of interesting exhibits. As my great-grandfather was an iron-puddler, I found the Museum of Iron, particularly interesting. I was totally impressed by how much the... More

I took a relative from the USA mostly just to fill a couple of hours as I live locally but had not been. It was an excellent visit and I will be going again - much more interesting than I expected.

A simple small attraction that does a great job of introducing you to the industrial heritage of the area. There's also a timely reminder that severe floods are nothing new! You'll need an hour at most for your visit.

Worth the trip to see exactly where the industrial revolution started.All the museum sites are worth a visit - get a gorge pass and take it all in on one ticket

What an amazing place! We only had an afetrnoon so did some of Blist Victorian village and the Tar tunnel and Coalport museum. It is a place you could spend a couple of days visiting, it's enormous and so interesting, from talking to the people in the buildings, the mason, squatters cottage and a miner's wife, to the sing song...

Our visit to Ironbridge Museums never fails to inspire us. For those interested in the industrial revolution and all that is associated with that era, Ironbridge Gorge & the Museum experience is well worth it . Today, we had the added bonus warm sunshine , a quiet cooling breeze and blue skies. Although, whenever we visit, rain, snow or sunshine,... More
