    A fun family day out is ensured at the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums. Meet the Victorians at Blists Hill Victorian Town and visit their shops, homes and workplaces, enjoy traditional Fish and Chips and a ride on the Fairground. Join in hands-on activities at many of the museums. Buy our great value Passport ticket and come back again and again for 12 months.
    There are ten award-winning Museums spread along the valley beside the wild River Severn – still spanned by the world’s first Iron Bridge.

    See the products that set industry on its path and the machines that made them. Watch and talk to the Museums’ craftsmen and costumed demonstrators as they work iron, fashion china and glass, and bring alive the people who lived and worked here.

    At Blists Hill Costumed staff give a warm welcome and a fascinating insight into how life was lived in Victorian Times. Exchange your money in the Bank; admire the goods in the Grocers, Bakery and Sweetshop. Find out about curious remedies in the Chemist and see the printer and candle-maker in action.
