  • It's a small museum but it gives an excellent introduction to the history of the area. The 12 m long diorama of how the Gorge looked in 1796 is well done and surprisingly informative. 
  • Did not have time to visit this time,but a lady on the front desk very helpful with bus times back to Telford. I will visit this museum on my next vivit

  • An excellent all-round introduction to the area and why it became the catalyst for different technologies to combine together in one place to start what we now call the 'industrial revolution'. A good place to start your visit.
  • Fantastic place. A must to visit. Oldest Ironbridge in the world! The town is quite quaint as well.
  • Good museum. We can know her more about Iron Bridge. On the walls of that museum we can fing historical marks of floods - some time it was very high!
  • Museum is simple but effective - you very quickly learn a lot about the region and the time at the start of the Industrial Revolution. The river and the bridge are a lovely place to see.
  • All the museums in this area are linked so ideally you should visit al of them but if you are going to do that, start here first where the area and the reasons for it being here are explained
