Iron Museum was fascinating, especially the interwoven histories of the founders of the area. Spent about 3 hours. Furnace cafe very good. Also went to the Tile Museum but ran out of time . Spent about 2 hours there. The Bridge is free and well worth seeing. Beautifully conserved. Also visited Blists Hill - reviewed that separately. Worth buying the annual pass if you are planning to see all the museums that are open (some shut because of Covid restrictions, but the website clearly says what is open). Certainly enough open to spend 2 full days there (adults without children).

Booked on line which was a little confusing, £20 but the ticket is valid for a year as only Blist Hill open due to Covid19. It is very well set out and plenty of activities to see. Fish and chips were wonderful. The whole experience was good. Clean and friendly and loved the period costumes. Some very talented people in old forgotten skills. Keep it up before we lose such skills.

Good insight to the foundations of our Industrial Age and daily life for people of the time. Victorian village was well done with the actors role playing very well staff and volunteers very friendly and helpful in spite of current times and extra pressures. Glad we came to discover this part of the history and the gorge and bridge too.

Only Blist Hill open - all other museums closed - they do not know when they will be open (or if). Paid £40 for two tickets and could only visit Blist Hill. The website does not show clearly that all other museums are totally closed. If you're happy paying full price for only one attraction that's fine. We are not likely to be in the area within 12 months - so not good value at all.
