I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't that! It starts by telling you about the natural stones and things found in the area (clay, iron ore and limestone etc) and gives you a history on the people that started a world renowned tile business. Lots of tiles on offer to see very interesting seeing how tastes shifted... More

We visited this museum about 20 years ago and enjoyed it then, but now it is much improved and expanded. We learnt a lot about the history and manufacture of tiles, totally fascinating!

Visited the museum last year. Fascinating place. Beautiful decorative tiles to look at from Classical, to Art Nouveau to the The Arts and Crafts Movement... the list goes on... Definately worth a visit if you have an interest in the decorative crafts. We brought passports and visited 3 museums/places of interest. Worth a visit and value for money!

If you like interior decor and the art of tiles - this is the place for you. We really loved it - it's interesting and quirky - good way to spend a couple of hours in the Ironbridge area.

Not impressed with the cafe,really needed something to eat so we queued behind a young man who was on his mobile,a woman came out and started to sort out paperwork,never spoke to any of us so don't know if the man was being served or not,eventually walked out to go elsewhere,lost a sale in the shop because of this.

We had modest expectations but found this museum fascinating - and far bigger than expected. From the Victorian offices to the glorious tiled murals, it was a delight. The individual tiles were interesting; the salvaged murals and other features were amazing. Such a shame that these skills are no longer so sought-after. As it was a wet, relentlessly rainy day,...

There are so many different and interesting designs that one could spend most of the day just studying them and learning of the history of the Industry

The museum was fantastic as anything the Ironbridge Museums do, plenty to see and lots of beautiful tiles and situations where tiles are used! Added bonus of being able to decorate your own tile is just incredible the children (and me... More
