  • Nice museum detailing the rise of the iron industry in Telford and the local area. Lots of examples of ironmongery and history of the leaders of the industry. Museum is small but packed with items, some of which are interactive so kids are happy.
  • An excellent museum of the central role of the area in the history of the industrial revolution in Britain. It includes an extensive exhibit of all the kinds of cast iron products it produced, especially in Victorian times (and in Victorian decorative taste).
  • Very interesting.. and worth a visit.. the only down side was my coffee from the permanent van that was there, I think they need to clean out the machine..
  • What wonderful experiences, celebrating a bygone age, and what ingenuity of all the volunteers who rebuilt the buildings making it look like they had been stood there forever.! Do take 2days if you can to see all the venues, and plan well so that you don't waste anytime or miss anything. Enginuity is purely for kids, so only go there if you are taking children! Very good area to visit, highly recommended
  • If you like industrial architecture you have to visit Ironbridge and its associated museums and sites.
