Unchanged for over a century, Ironbridge Gorge lets you relive the past.
It was here that Abraham Darby perfected a new technology for making iron which led to Britain becoming the first industrial nation.
Despite it's industrial past, Ironbridge Gorge is now one of the most scenic areas in the country, designated a World Heritage Site in 1987; the perfect place to unwind and escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
In its dramatic and scenic setting, the Museum is spread along the banks of the River Severn as it flows under the world's first iron bridge and through the site of Britain's early industrial heritage.
Hailed as European Museum of the year in 1977, the Museum comprises not one, but six separate sites, and covers some six square miles.
