Not impressed with the cafe,really needed something to eat so we queued behind a young man who was on his mobile,a woman came out and started to sort out paperwork,never spoke to any of us so don't know if the man was being served or not,eventually walked out to go elsewhere,lost a sale in the shop because of this.

We had modest expectations but found this museum fascinating - and far bigger than expected. From the Victorian offices to the glorious tiled murals, it was a delight. The individual tiles were interesting; the salvaged murals and other features were amazing. Such a shame that these skills are no longer so sought-after. As it was a wet, relentlessly rainy day,...

There are so many different and interesting designs that one could spend most of the day just studying them and learning of the history of the Industry

The museum was fantastic as anything the Ironbridge Museums do, plenty to see and lots of beautiful tiles and situations where tiles are used! Added bonus of being able to decorate your own tile is just incredible the children (and me... More

This was the only Industrial Age museum open in the winter months that my wife and I had not yet been to. We went reluctantly but were glad we did, it's unexpectedly fantastic and would keep a broad range of people's interests. Parking is three pounds and admission is nearly ten for an adult but worth it. Tiles form several... More

Nice visit, very interesting. Some beautiful tiles. Nice little cafe and gift shop. It would of been nice to do our own tile, but think that's only for schools, but not sure.

When you think of Ironbridge you tend not to think of ceramics but there was a thriving tile making industry on this site and this museum explains the history and technology very clearly. There is an extensive display of tiles produced here in the past, some in display cases, others in mocked up rooms. The range of patterns is fascinating... More
