Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust
The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust Limited is registered charity (503717-R) established in 1967 with the twin aims of education and heritage conservation and is one of the largest independent museums in the world. The Trust cares for 36 scheduled monuments and listed buildings within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and operates 10 award-winning museums that collectively tell the story of the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. At Blists Hill Victorian Town the costumed townsfolk demonstrate life at the turn of the last century in the cottages, shops and places of work. Enginuity brings to life Design and Technology for children of all ages with the use of giant interactives and school holiday workshops and events. Other museums all help to tell the world changing story of the Industrial Revolution including Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron, Coalport China Museum and Jackfield Tile Museum.
