Ironbridge

Explore your industrial past among the ten sites of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum. The sites are spread throughout the Ironbridge Gorge, besides the River Severn - still spanned by the World's first Iron Bridge.

 

A fun and informative day out is ensured at the Ironbridge Gorge Museums in Shropshire.

 

Whether you are interested in finding out about fine china, fun interactives, or life in our re-created Victorian town, it's all to be found in this stunning World Heritage Site in the Heart of England.

 

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Watch the world go by over 100 years ago at Blists Hill Victorian Town. Find out about life in a small working community with a chat to some of the characters - maybe the dressmaker or the druggist, the butcher or the baker.

 

Coalport China Museum

Marvel at the National Collections of Coalport and Caughley china displayed in the riverside buildings in which it was made. Experience much more as craftspeople here demonstrate a range of traditional techniques.

 

Jackfield Tile Museum

Travel through rooms alive with colour and design - a hospital ward, a tube station, a 1930s front room all show how ceramic tiles were used to decorate any number of environments.

 

Enginuity

Let your imagination run wild as you discover how everyday objects work or play with the huge interactive exhibits. This is the place to roll up your sleeves and get involved.

 

The Museum of Iron, Broseley Pipeworks, Museum of the Gorge, Tar Tunnel, Darby Houses and Iron Bridge & Tollhouse complete the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums, telling the story of the geology, geography, industries and people which made this now tranquil area the hub of the Industrial Revolution.
