  • good variety in museums. didn't haver time to visit them all but really enjoyed those we did visit. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. 
  • If you want history then this is the place, the start of the Industrial Revolution, smelting iron and, china and much more to see with 10 fine museums to visit. 
  • Went to ironbridge for a short weekend. Returning we had time to visit the museum. Was a good insight to the history of the area

  • This museum helps to explain the evolution of iron making and how this kick-started the beginnings of the industrial revolution that swept across the world. Lots to see here and well worth a visit, including the substantial remains of the original furnaces used to produce iron for the Ironbridge.
  • I went just to visit their library archives, which was excellent in itself, so i need to go back and explore everything else that I only got a glimpse of.
  • A bit boring but i am a teenager
