A very pleasant village to visit and stroll along the vilage street to the bridge. Quite a number of shops and museum to visit. The bridge itself is unique with a nice view over the Severn River

Not much to be shown in Museum at all, not a good or interesting experience. Very small museum, only two rooms which did not contain a lot. Location was good, it was right near the Ironbridge and near shops.

Visited with my partner and my 8 year old. Very interesting and informative little museum. Do get the ironbridge annual pass if you're visiting more than one of the Museums.

Very interesting displays, particularly large model of the original area with great level of detail. Very good video presentation - best to visit this museum before others in the area as it sets the scene very well.

Visited the Gorge museums, what an experience, I cannot recommend Ironbridge museums enough. Great fun and seriously interesting. Our favourite was the Blist Hill Victorian town. I would recommend the 12 month pass, really good value.
