Vey disappointed with the new look museum of iron. Where are all the exhibits; where has the clock gone; where is the café? It is now a museum of reading. I can buy a book to read about the history of Coalbrookdale, when I go...More

We loved our time in Ironbridge. All of the museums are fascinating, well priced and easy to access (with a car, though you can walk). Can't wait to go back one day!

Enjoyed the museum. The video gives you all the background information for all ten museums. It didn't take long to look round as with small children it wasn't quite their thing. Centrally located. Short walk up hill to the town.

Blist hill is the place that takes up most of the time, the other site can be covered in an hour or so. My advice is to go over a couple of days and to go to Blist Hill on one day and then visit which ever of the other sites... More
