Voodoo dolls in a Heritage museum?

I recently visited the Museum of the Gorge which was as good as I expected for a Heritage site. However, on visiting the shop to purchase a momento of my visit, I was appalled to... read more

Came here to see ten museums but this one was closed. Paid to see ten in advance no one offered to give us any money back. Yes we can go back to see it but really go back to see one museum

Adjacent to Pay & Display Car Park at end of town where there are also Toilets. An interesting Museum if you want to get a 'flavour' of the area and don't have time to visit the larger attractions such as Blists a Hill nearby.

Interesting museum, as all are in the area. With the passport you can nip in and out whenever you like.

Smaller than expected and apologies by staff for some parts being under reconstruction. Fascinating model of the gorge. The film was the most informative piece of information of our visit to the area, wish I had seen it at the beginning.

As I had stayed in Ironbridge on business I wanted to pop in here when I managed to get an hour free to get an idea of the gorge's history. I wasn't staying long enough to visit all museums on the inclusive ticket so I ended up up parking in the council car park outside the museum for the 30... More

Thought the museum would be better. Nice diorama of the town in the old days and the movie was interesting. Didn't spend much time there.

It was great to learn all the history of Ironbridge. From the humble beginnings of the planning stage right through to the completion. Loved every minute of it.

I recently visited the Museum of the Gorge which was as good as I expected for a Heritage site. However, on visiting the shop to purchase a momento of my visit, I was appalled to see voodoo dolls for sale. Surely a Heritage site shop should be selling items pertaining to heritage? Other than this obvious faux par, my trip... More

Total rip off. £2.80 to park the car and £3.50 each to watch a 20 min video! It really is no more than a gift shop. Be warned.
