The museums chart the progress into the Industrial revolution, where visitors can see and in some cases experience what life was like in these changing times. There is a lot of information about the Iron making industry which the town is named after.

For example you can step back in time to Victorian life at Blists Hill where costumed staff bring the town to life. Enginuity is an interactive design and technology centre where you can explore and play to discover how everyday objects work. A must for kids with imagination. Coalbrookdale charts the success of Abraham Darby who perfected the Iron making process and put Ironbridge on the map.

Loads to see and do, so why not plan your visit by looking at their website.
