Thorough enjoyed our visit to this museum. Brilliant displays of all different tiles and how they have been used over the years. Didn't know how interesting tiles could be! Well worth a visit. Allow a good couple of hours.

part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. We went to Ironbridge and it took one full day and half of another of our trip. You have to pay for parking for all the places you visit, so keep change on you. There's set times of when the museums are open. We worked out it was cheaper to buy an annul pass... More

This is quite an interesting museum, although if you are fascinated by tiles and their history it will be more to you. As a gallery of decorated tiles we found it enjoyable, without needing any history.

The variety of tiles was amazing and the history of the tile manufacturers' rise to international acclaim fascinating. An interest in design adds to the experience, but the way the exhibits are displayed, showing them being used in everyday places that you almost take for granted grabs everyone's attention (hospitals, subways, toilets etc). We even spotted tiles reminiscent of the... More

We visited the Tile Museum as part of our day trip the Ironbridge Gorge.  The reason for our visit to this particular museum was that I wanted my two children to make a tile (advertised at £5 each) for me to add to a family mosaic that we’re working on.  The closing time for the museum was advertised as 5pm and...

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
