I no longer take tiles for granted.

Very sad to learn the history of the village. Amazed at the variety of tiles produced over the years - I'd always seen them as wall/floor coverings and not works of art.

I recommend taking part in tile decorating... Great fun for adults and children! I think the museum itself is quite expensive for what it has to offer.

We visited the Jackfield Tile Museum and Tile factory during half term week. What an interesting place! We were able to decorate our own tiles as 'drop-in' workshops are held during school holidays and (I think) on Tuesdays during term time. This was great fun and kept the whole family entertained for 2 hours! School groups can come during term... More

Was not expecting this to be at all interesting yet was probably one of thw highlights of the trip. We were able to look around the displays which were fascinating before being invited one tour at 11. It was top class and we were so pleased that we had stood there.

This small museum is well worth an hour or two. The factory produced millions of high qualtiy tiles including some great sets for the Harrods Food Halls and many Unerground stations. The dispalys are well presented and informative.

I had already read the reviews to know that they don't do workshops at the time we went. (Saterday beginning of march.). The shop was very inviting with lovely artistic items on display. We paid for one adult and one child.(my four year old was free.).. The main room wasn't very well presented lots of writing but quite small in... More

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
