Very informative

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

Very interesting to see and included in the price of the annual ironbridge pass. Took us back in time whilst walking through the butchers shop as as a small child I can remember the Dewhurst chain of butchers all looking like this

Interesting exhibits about tile uses, design and manufacture through the ages. Towards the end they have some interactive stations where you can view their collection of tiles. Modern tile and glass workshops on the same site.

Tell people you are visiting a tike museum and they tend to glaze over.... But Jackfield is a genuinely engaging and interesting journey through the history of tiles with well preserved examples for you to choose your favourite. We visited at Easter so took part in tile decorating with our 7 and 2 year old. A great day out as... More

After a couple of hours here we certainly knew a lot more about tiles than before! Well set out in original buildings, good descriptions of the tiles, their manufacture and the people associated with the tile industry.

Probably better suited to adults than young children, as there's a lot of writing to read, thousands upon thousands of tile examples and a great deal of explanation about tile making... but a tile painting workshop might make a good lure for younger visitors! As we're older folk, it suited us and we particularly enjoyed the examples of tiles commissioned... More
