Visited this museum as we had the 10 attraction Passport for Ironbridge, having one of these is the most economic way to visit the Ironbridge museums. This museum is set over 3 floors and is a very static experience, with much reading and a few...More

We also ate from the van parked outside Enginuity, behind the Museum of Iron. We had sandwiches crisps drinks and biscuits and the food was quite adequate. There weren't enough chairs and tables though so we had to sit on a wall. Loads of lovely tea rooms in Ironbridge though and this would be a better option if you have time.
