The Ironbridge Gorge MuseumsThe Ironbridge Gorge Museums

A fun day out is ensured at the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums, near Telford in Shropshire. Step back in time at BlistsVictorian Town and chat to the Victorians in their homes and places of work. Marvel at magnificent china in Coalport China Museum, then walk through period room settings adorned with decorative tiles at Jackfield Tile Museum and let your imagination go wild at the Enginuity design and technology centre as youbecome an engineer for the day. The Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron celebrates the early iron industry while the Museum of The Gorge explains the area's importance. Finally cross the world's first Iron Bridge and imagine what life was like around 300 years ago when industrial development began. An Annual Passport Ticket allowing entry into all ten museums, valid for 12 months and unlimited return visits costs £24 adults, £19 seniors, £15.25 children/students and £65 for a family of two adults and all their children up to 18 in full time education (terms &conditions apply); under 5s free.

 

Author's Review

One could be forgiven for thinking that a visit to Shropshire wouldn't yield many tourist attractions at all. But truth be known, Shropshire has a lot to offer tourists visiting the area and wefeatured in this section ten of the best places to visit. One of those ten, actually offers ten of their own attractions, and has one of the largest visitor numbers in the area. These are the museums within the Ironbridge Gorge collection, all of which I couldn't possibly review in just 150 words.But I will go as far as to say that I visited all over a two day period, and I would gladly do it all over again. If you add up all of theadmission fees, you will see that purchasing an annual pass is the best way financially to visit all of these ten Ironbridge attractions.
