Had a lovely time wondering round. In origional building which added to the experience. Seconds shop was shut on the Sunday which would have been nice to see and no fridge magnets on sale. A reoccurring thing we found throughout Ironbridge strangely.

Who would have thought tiles could be so interesting. Great place to explore the history of tile making and their design. The museum was well set out with a great cafe, very tempting gift and seconds shop and friendly, helpful staff.

An interesting museum with some beautiful examples of how people use to tile their homes/work places. Their are some old tiles/mosaics and the private collection of a life long collector. Nice to see but does not talk long to look around.

Wrong, wrong and thrice wrong!!! I thought I had no interest in tiles, but about 2 hours later I was proven totally, absolutely, completely and 100% wrong. The place is utterly fascinating, with artwork and craftsmanship that is unbelievable, but yet it happened. There are...More
