I wasn't enthralled at the thought of a 'tile museum' but it was very interesting and I really enjoyed myself! The collection of tiles is excellent as well as the information about the development of the tiles. There was even a lifesize example of tiles used to decorate a London tube station! It was fairly quiet and it seemed like... More

We visited the Jackfield tile museum during a two day trip to the Ironbridge museums. The display of tiles is magnificent and we could have spent more than an hour wandering around. The tiles are displayed in the original Victorian building that housed the offices and display areas of the tile company, so the architecture was as interesting as the... More

Thought there would be more displays of the manufacturing process. Lots of tiles on display from different eras. Didn't find it very interesting only spent half hour here wouldn't rush back. Children would be bored.

If you like wall tiles and floor tiles this is a museum you will love. A true form of creative art. The butchers room was my favourite.

This was an excellent museum although probably less so if you have young children. We really enjoyed the different displays, the colour of the tiles. All very well organised. It was the weekend so there were no works in progress but we had a great time.

A well arranged, well-filled and very interesting museum that we visited only because it was raining but we are so glad that we did! A fascinating look at an aspect of industrial archaeology that is not well known and is surprisingly interesting, especially as the story told is not limited to the local area.

Good car park on arrival & as ticket machine not working no fee to pay. Normally £2 all day I believe. Then into a brand new building with a clean toilet. A number of commercial outlets will fill this building. Then on to the museum itself. Friendly staff sold us the annual Ironbridge pass - good value at £20 for... More

The museum is a long walk through but well set out with its displays of tiles, tiled rooms and information. Our whole family enjoyed the activity in the museum of sorting the different sized tiles to make patterns. The tile decorating activity is a must for anyone who enjoys arts and crafts. Reasonable priced. There is also a gallery of... More
