“A trip back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

This part of the museum complex is only open for half of the year and in the afternoons. However, it is worth a visit to see how claypipes were made 200 years ago. Staff (on the day we went Natalie) very welcoming and helpful. Small car park (free). Sat Nav on postcode works. Trip to museum from Ironbridge is exciting itself.

“Great little museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

When we pulled up were were shocked to see its smoking pipes not water pipes lol. Purely our ignorance or imagination!
Truly fascinating.
What a great insight into the production of pipes back in the day.
We purchased some pipes when we left to give to friends. :)
I highly recommend a visit here.

“Unable to visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I was unable to visit here as I am disabled and my disability Scooter or wheelchair were not acceptable here or any of their other attractions in Ironbridge. Both my self and my companions were extremely upset by this revelation as we were looking forward to this visit for some days.

“Never knew there were so many pipes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

The place that time has forgot.

We were watching the information video with other visitors, and an elderly lady used to live in the area and recognised some of the faces on the video. She also remenissed about her time in the area which was an extra bonus.

About an hour to hour and a half should be enough to view the premises.

It is an old and rickety building, but that is part of the charm and expirence
