We liked this and it got better as you got into it. Something for each of us. Not enough info about processes or the tiles. Loved the sound effects with the rooms and underground. Great cafe, reasonable price and lovely staff. Would return.

I really didn't know what to expect and so I was truly amazed at how interesting the tile museum was. I was fascinated by the variety, and size, of the tiles, how they were made and in all of the locations they were used. Well worth a visit, and purchasing something in the shop helps to keep it going, as... More

I just loved this place! Even my husband,whom I dragged there, had to admit he enjoyed it. I've visited tile museums around Europe and this really was the best. It's certainly not the biggest but the absolute quality of the tiles on display was beyond comparison. They grouped the tile displays into logical sections which made it easy on the... More

I was not too sure about visiting but as my wife was interested and we had an annual passport ticket I thought, "Why not!". As you might expect, there is an extensive and varied display of tiles, mainly charting the history of tile manufacturing on the Jackfield site. There are also references to the social history of the people who... More

If you like art, ceramics and history, this is the place for you. The exhibits blew me away. The quality of the exhibits and the way they are displayed is top-notch. There is a superb and wide selection of tiles, many shown in 'in situ' display that really show them at their best. Unfortunately, we didn't know about the 11am... More

Plenty information and an eye opening display of tiles fine day. Well worth the trip, steping back into history where the Industrial Revolution began.

Fascinating insight into the world of tiles, within the old factory at Jackfield. A display of the various styles and excellent walk through rooms with tiles in situ ... How they would have been used.....and then lots and lots of tile styles and displays. Superb for a design student ... We ran out of steam after a while. Nice little... More

Really interesting and informative, who knew tiles could be so good. Perhaps early in the season as some of the rooms were closed on Saturday.

The thought of visiting a tile museum wasn't top of my to do list, but then we visited Jackfield Tile Museum. We were walking along the Severn Valley Way from the Iron Bridge on the way to Blists Hill Victorian Town and came by the Tile Museum. Firstly, the outside of the buildings are worth looking round, finding out about... More

So interesting to see the hundreds of different designs through the ages and the process of making tiles. Highlight was the mock up of part of The Mountain Daisy pub in Sunderland -been there a few times in the past
