Jackfield Tile Museum

The Jackfield Tile Museum is the home of the Victorian Tile!

The Museum is in the historic and ornate buildings of the original Craven Dunnill and Company Factory, which was at the heart of tile production in the Victorian Age (although tiles have been produced in the village of Jackfield since the 16th Century).

The Museum shows the history of tile production, including some beautiful arts and crafts tiles, and explains how the different methods of tile decoration are carried out.

On display there are hundreds of beautiful individual tiles, and panels telling stories or setting scenes, with information about the origins of each.

The recreations of scenes showing where tiles were used are a highlight of the museum - a tiled Edwardian Underground Station,

an ornately tiled public house,

a decorative church altar, and a beautiful frieze in a butcher's shop.

There is a working tile factory on site, and you can peek through the window to see how they are made today.

There is even a small factory seconds shop, so you can perhaps take home a memento of your visit!

There is also a gift shop in the entrance to the museum, where you can buy Ironbridge Gorge and Tile themed gifts.

Admission Charges

(2017 prices)

An Annual Passport Ticket allows repeat admission to all ten Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust's museums for a whole year. 

Even better, if you don't manage to visit all of the museums within the year, you can come back one last time to visit the ones you've missed!

Adult £25.00; Senior Citizen £20.00
Child/Student £15.00

Family (2 adults & their children) £68.00

Family (1 adult & their children) £50.00

You can save 10% if you buy your tickets on line in advance - you will be sent an e-ticket which must be exchanged for Annual Passport Tickets at Blists Hill Victorian Town only.

You can purchase Single Attraction tickets on the door (not available online), but unless you really are only visiting one attraction in the next year, it makes sense to get the Annual Passport.
