Only visited one museum. Well presented and informative. Only down side to visit is the parking in Ironbridge which is confusing and limited to 3 hours only? This does not allow time for visiting all the museums & attractions.

I was only visiting for the day so didn't want to buy the annual pass and paid £4.95 for the Gorge Museum. For a one off the museum is... More

Visited the museum which is also the tourist information office today. It was two rooms, with hardly anything in them, and you had to pay £4.95 each for entry for an adult, my advice don't bother.

Enjoyed looking round the museum today but not too much to see inside. The building itself was beautiful and was interesting to see how high the water levels have been in times gone by.

Spent a long weekend in the area and visited several museums. Most of them are maybe an hour to look round, which is great for kids or people who are bored easily. We got a "passport" which you stamp at each museum, and it's a lot cheaper than paying separately even for two museums. This is £25, and Victorian town... More

Seen lots of exhibitions here but the model If the industry in the Severn valley is amazing and just shows how the industrial revolution happened. Fantastic!

Ironbridge is certainly a unique place with authentic shops and you really feel that you have gone back in time. I particularly liked the Victorian bakery, the Doctor's house, Bank,the restaurant and fairground to name but a few. A somewhat over complicated price structure but basically At £25 for an adult and £68 for a family it does not come... More

We were in Telford in may and went to the Victorian Village. In order to do that we purchased a "Passport" which allowed us access to all of the museums as many times as we liked for a whole year. AND if we had missed any we can go once at any time in the future to visit that attraction.... More

My review isn't on the museum, but THE BRIDGE over the river and the village around it...you have to pay for the Museum (I believe) but not the rest. Good place for those enthusiastic photographers, good place for history and nostalgia. Well worth seeing (my 2nd visit) plus a good number of shops including vintage and charity ones
