This was one of the best museums in the area. We enjoyed a pleasant, although muddy, walk there from Ironbridge. The staff were very informative and helpful. It was a really interesting visit and we enjoyed the huge variety of tiles on display. The exhibits are well labelled and well displayed. Both the shop and the café were very good.

Hi all parents Hi .... this is something I don't want to share but feel I am being selfish if I do not... This small and hidden away place is not that well known, but the likes of myself, who have discovered how to keep teenage girls and now for the first time my 23 year old daughter, totally engrossed...

Lots of lovely tiles to look at and discuss, we like doing the quiz from front desk and getting tile sticker! Daughter loves doing tiling puzzle in last room, if they sold that as puzzle to buy we'd have one already! Cafe is very reasonably priced and tasty (although cappuccino was dreadful), has jacket potatoes, variety of soups, paninis, toasted... More

Been to all the museum with a passport which saves you money. Really interesting historical museum. They have a great record of designs of the tiles that they made.

We only visited the Ironbridge area for one day, so after Blists Hill Victorian Town, we were pushed for time and decided to pop into the shop only at the Tile Museum. It is teeming with stuff you can buy only there and resulted in almost an hour of browsing time. Things were reasonably priced and we realised we need... More

We bought the all in one ticket for all the museums and because we were running out of time, we said we would pop in the tile museum as it would only take about 15 minutes and was probably boring. How wrong could I be, it was amazing. I loved the tile displays and a lot of thought had gone... More

Loved the displays and the static info, a lot to look at for adults, but kids need more interactive stuff, which is a bit thin saved by a few monitors!

Excellent museum tracing the history of the tile industry in Shropshire. The private collection by John Scott is facinating.
