If you're interested in the decorative arts, tile-making, or industrial history etc, then this museum is definitely worth a visit. It's really well presented, with lots of different galleries thoughtfully displayed in original factory buildings. It feels authoritative without being stuffy and there are some...More

Two quick moans, parking charges (see my Blists Hill review), and why did we have to go and dig out someone to open up more than ten minutes after the advertised opening time. Now this place is interesting if you are into tiles and/or art...More

The tile museum seemed a good choice to spend an hour out of the rain at the Ironbridge site. We expected a couple of rooms of tiles, instead we found a big, informative and interesting museum displaying thousands of tiles of all shapes, colours, styles...More

Not for me but my wife loved it and that makes for a good afternoon which is priceless. Try it you never know.

With a passport to visit all the Ironbridge sites, a visit to the Tile Museum is a must, however I don't think it's worth the one trip price (£9 or £8.10 for an OAP). Some of the displays, particular the panels such as the Shakespeare...More
