Ironbridge Passport

The most cost effective way to visit the collection of Ironbridge museums is to invest in an Ironbridge Annual Passport.

This allows you unlimited access, (some restrictions on use for special events), to all ten Ironbridge Museums within a 12 month period.

An adult annual passport is currently priced at £27.50 & a child’s annual passport is just £16.50, (a child is classed as aged between 5 & 18 years in full time education).

Whilst it is possible to pay daily admission charges for individual settings, it is worth noting that an adult ticket to Blists Hill Victorian Town, (the most popular of the ten museums & well worth a visit), would put you back £16.50 an adult or £11 a child for just one visit.
