We walked up the hill from the car park near the bridge, it was worth the effort although we could have driven. The museum is well laid out and the outside parts, like the furnace, are very pleasing.

The Museum of Iron has been completely re-structured. The displays are excellent and highly informative with great detail. Young children will find it over wordy but will like the interactive photographs screen table. You will need at least an hour if you are to take...More
