    Jackfield Tile Museum is one of ten museums that make up the Ironbridge Gorge Museum trust.  While you may roll your eyes at the thought of going to a tile museum, it is our favorite museum out of the ten.  The museum is set on the site of a working tile factor.  The exhibitions are set up to include a scene of fairy tale tiles that were preserved from a  1930s hospital that was going to be demolished, an Edwardian Tube Station, a pub, butchers, typical 1930s front room and the original office, including the large accountant and order books used to ensure all orders were filled.  This is next to the show room, where they would sell their products via prime examples of the complex tiles created.
