Blists Hill is exactly how museums should be - involving and fun for all ages and perfect for a family day out. I visited with my niece, great niece (aged 6) and sister and really couldn't fault it. The costumed museum staff all happily chat to you about 'their life,work and home' and the whole emphasis is on participation and literally 'living' the experience, rather than having to read lots of information. My sister and I shared previously almost forgotten memories of grandparents, and it was a fantastic opportunity to pass those memories onto the next two generations. We especially loved the sing along in the pub, the fish and chips, the mine tunnel, the Victorian fairground, the carpenters & blacksmiths, the squatters cottage, the beautiful (and really well looked after) shire horses and the fabulous setting in the stunning Ironbridge Gorge. But everything really was great - real quality time that was so rewarding for all four of us on many different levels and definitely worth the money. Well done Ironbridge!
