This museum gives a real feeling of tile making and the impressive designs from famous designers of the past. There is a fantastic exhibition of tiles from a collector which displays the unbelievable range of tile designs. Again the Art Fund card gets you in free.

If you already like tiles, this is one of the best museums anywhere; if you're not already into tiles, a visit here is likely to get you hooked. Superb range of all styles and dates, well explained and attractively presented. The recently-opened John Scott gallery is a real treat. Small café and shop with interesting things.

We used our Ironbridge "passports" to visit here and it was a lot more interesting than we were expecting. Not only did they explain how the various tiles were made, but there are exhibits showing mock-ups of e.g. shops, churches and even an underground station with their associated tiling.

Not just informative but interesting too. Takes about 1 1/2 hours to walk through. Spotted some of the tiles last time we were on the London underground. Get an Ironbridge Gorge passport and visit all the different sites. You don't have to use it up in one visit. Lots to see and do for all the family. Parking charges apply... More

Really interesting to see the old and new - what an array of designs & techniques by a variety of designers. Some of the displays and the history of tiles is really interesting. The shop sells a variety of traditional & modern tiles - not cheap but you 'get what you pay for '. Nice little cafe where you can... More

After a brief 5 minute visual presentation you head through a door which was the original entrance to the Jackfield Factory which as you'd expect was covered with fine tiles from that era. You then proceed along a series of different places where you would expect to see tiles for example, the London Underground, Churches, Pubs, Homes etc. The remaining... More

This was a great place to visit. Lots of interesting things to see - definitely a trip down memory lane! Even if you're not 'wowed' at the thought of tiles, it's worth going to see the huge collection.

This is one of those places you either find interesting or not. It is a comprehensive museum dedicated to decorative tiles through the years. If that is something you find interesting, as my wife did, it is great. If it is not (like me) it is not interesting - it is as simple as that.
