  • Welcoming reception by young lady who answered all our questions and took time to deal with others in turn. We found a small museum but with good use of rooms to display a selection of artefacts which tell the story of Ironbridge. (Including a film but as you come out.) Well stocked shop with selection of gifts. Only cool drinks.
  • Definitely a must area to visit out of the 10 museums . History made easy ! Lovely village to walk around !
  • Very small museum. Model panorama on what the valley looked like 200 years ago. And a not too interesting 10 minute movie. Ok if you have the gorge museums passport, otherwise not worth the money. Allow for about 30 minutes. Pay&display parking.
  • Done as part of the savers tickets. Interesting for adults. Not really that much to do. 20mins max. Big shop full of cheap tat but kids like it.
  • A small, but informative introduction to the history of the area and it's associated museums and attractions. The best place to start your visit to the area.
