Disappointed with this attraction. If visiting Ironbridge you can buy a pass to visit the ten museums but this is quite pricey. I decided to visit this museum with my 9 year old son to find out a bit more about the local area. Although the posters were well done we had viewed them in 10 minutes then a 10... More

Parked early next to the Museum, car park filled up quickly plus maximum time 3 hours. Clean toilets available. Agree it's a small museum and it would be worthwhile to visit this first as a previous reviewer mentioned as a quick overview of the Ironbridge history. The windows in one part of the museum overlooking the Severn are beautiful and... More

Having paid £2.30 for parking, we were enticed in by the promise a suggested 45 mins to tour the museum. .....it actually took about 20, plus a ten minute intro film to the history of the area.... and plug forthe other museums. The museum ticket cost 3.50 for seniors, and is valid for a year ! Totally uneccesary, as you've... More

Visited between Christmas and New Year 2013 the staff on duty were friendly and helpful. The displays were informative but the whole visit could be done in under 30 mins.

Helpful, friendly staff who sorted out our Passports with a discount for being for being English Heritage members and was exceptionally good value. Pointed us in the right direction and gave guidance on time to allow for viewing. Interesting and informative museum. Car parks good value as one ticket covered us for all museum car parks.

An interesting model of the area as it might have been in the midst of the industrial revolution. Some interesting artefacts and a short film. Having to pay for parking at each an every museum you visit is a bit of a con job, if you are not fit and able to walk the distance. The passport if you take... More

Buy a season ticket for all the ten museums of the Gorge - that way you get fantastic value. This is also the Tourist Information Office so a great place to pick up information and a really good gift shop selling museum souvenirs. The Gorge Museum is very small so you don't need a lot of time to see everything... More
