Visited here on a day out. Fantastic time, beautiful location, lots to see and do. Would definitely return if we were in the area again. Kids loved it and they are not easily pleased.

Informative and interesting to see the various items on show and the drawings of the Ironbridge and general way of life. Highly recommend for a family interested in the history etc.
