The audio visual was quite interesting but apart from that there was very little to see. Even the shop seemed to be geared up to sell little of relevance.

This was our first stop on our day out in Ironbridge and in truth was a bit disappointing. There's not really very much in it and the whole trip took less than 15 minutes even allowing for the video about the making of the Bridge. On the plus side its a gentle introduction to the Gorge but don't expect too... More

I liked this museum it was interesting and informative. I wished I had gone to the ironworks museum first as it would have worked better I believe.

Like a previous reviewer said not a lot to see apart from the film which was informative.Not a lot of room in there either so would not like to be in there if there was a coach party in! Housed in an excellently designed building by the Gorge with great views out of the window. Also a good perspective on... More

The artefacts are not all that exciting but the 10 minute film show does impart the necessary information. One area of interest is the height of the floods - some very recent!! The Museum staff are also very helpful. There is a... More

This is definitely the best place to start a visit to Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale as the enormous model of the gorge and the introductory film really help to put everything in context. The short film is really excellent BUT it is located by the exit to the museum. Take my advice and watch it FIRST!

It's a very limited offering here. There is a mini-theatre where the history of Ironbridge is shown but I think we were in and out within 15 minutes. Entrance price at £4.15 is way over the top but you are encouraged to buy a pass for all 10 Ironbridge museums/attractions at £27.50 which would then include this museum. It is... More

Scale model of the valley put the whole Industrial Revolution into context. The video was clear and informative. Excellent.
