Not a large museum but, it shows you want you need to see. There is a model of the Ironbridge Gorge showing all the industry lining the river Severn in Victorian times. Really good, with pleasant staff who are happy to help and advise.

Visited here as we had the Ironbridge passport and we're also wanting to visit Iron bridge town. It's a lovely little museum showing you the history of Ironbridge and surrounding areas. Lovely model sized mock up of the whole gorge really brings it all to life and a really informative video at the end. 5 out of 5 from me.... More

We were amazed how much there was to see and picked up some interesting historical information of which we were not aware. Do visit

This should be your first stop in Ironbridge, as it provides a nice overview of the region's history, which is surprisingly fascinating. The maquette in the front of the exhibit is really an astonishing work of art, and I appreciated the display of the region's craftsmanship in bone china, ceramic tile, and iron cookware.

This is like a "taster" of all the other museums and gives a very good run down of the other attractions plus a short film that explains why the industry was there.
