Get closer to the metal that makes our world at Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron - one of the award-winning museums within Ironbridge Valley of Invention.

Understand the origin of the revolution that launched mass production, changing lives around the world forever. Be inspired by the vision and determination of Abraham Darby I and the extraordinary breadth of objects made from one of the earth’s most abundant elements.

Meet the Darbys, each with their own story to tell and find out more about the Ironfounders.

See intricate examples of Coalbrookdale ironwork including pieces from the legendary great exhibition of 1851, stunning statues, exquisite art castings and interactive exhibits.

Walk across the green stopping to look at the striking Boy & Swan Fountain before casting your eyes on the majestic triangle building which houses the original furnace where Abraham Darby I perfected the world-changing iron smelting technique – the site where iron changed our lives forever.
