All told there are about 10 attractions in the Iron Bridge Gorge so you will need at least a couple of days to do them justice. The Blists Hill Village can take the best part of a day alone. The annual pass may seem expensive but when you consider what you get then I think that it is worth it.... More

Only visited one museum. Well presented and informative. Only down side to visit is the parking in Ironbridge which is confusing and limited to 3 hours only? This does not allow time for visiting all the museums & attractions.

I was only visiting for the day so didn't want to buy the annual pass and paid £4.95 for the Gorge Museum. For a one off the museum is... More

Visited the museum which is also the tourist information office today. It was two rooms, with hardly anything in them, and you had to pay £4.95 each for entry for an adult, my advice don't bother.

Enjoyed looking round the museum today but not too much to see inside. The building itself was beautiful and was interesting to see how high the water levels have been in times gone by.
