Museum of the Gorge

The Museum of the Gorge is located in the Old Severn Warehouse - a church-like, neo Gothic building a short walk alongside the River from the Iron Bridge. See what the Gorge was like in 1796 with the help of a giant 12 meter long model. Spot a Royal carriage crossing the Iron Bridge, the cargo on a Severn Trow and a tiny figure toiling in a coalmine. Understand more about the area's history and discover why the Gorge was made a World Heritage Site during a short film.

Activities and demonstrations vary from day to day and some activities carry an additional cost. Call +44 (0)1952 884391 to check what is happening.
