The museum is well-laid out with plenty of room to view the history of tile-making in the area. There are hundreds (thousands?) of examples of tiles, setting out the manufacturing process as well as insights into their design.

Inside a lovely building that is worth a look round on its own merit, houses an amazing collection of tiles - well worth a visit

We are not really into museums but as we had purchased the Ironbridge attraction passport we visited this attraction one afternoon. It was well worth the visit, we really enjoyed seeing the great selection of tiles on display and those in situ. We would have liked to gone on a tour but none available on the day. I was surprised... More

We visited this museum and found it more interesting than I expected. The displays were informative and the atmosphere of a Victorian factory still prevails. Nice shop selling hand made tiles and good quality gifts etc.

This was one of the museums we visited during our recent stay in Ironbridge. Our tour was self-directed, so we didn't get the guided tour. However, it was still a very interesting visit, and can be recommended - whether you are doing it as part of the Ironbridge Museums passport scheme or just as a one-off. The tile collection is...

Brilliant museum, part of the passport system (a must). Shame that more tours are not available, sure that we missed out. My husband was a bit reluctant, but really enjoyed it!

We visited this museum at the beginning of June, and were lucky enough to arrive in time to join the factory tour. I have to say that we wouldn't have found it nearly so interesting if we had just gone round on our own. Our guide was very good, she explained everything really well, interspersed with little stories about the... More

Well worth a visit on your 'passport' with the other museums- good kids trail and plenty of additional activities, easily accessible and a good collection.

Jackfield Tile Museum is one of several industrial museums in the Ironbridge area. The first impressions were not good - the car park appears to be pay and display - but a note informs you that museum visitors do not have to pay. The entrance was through a new Arts Building, Fusion, which was sadly empty on the Bank Holiday... More

We had heard this was a must see and we were not disappointed. Take time to see the whole place. Just amazing.
