Registered Charity No: 503717-R (England & Wales).

Founded in 1967, The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust Limited is a registered charity with the twin aims of education and heritage conservation. The Trust cares for 36 scheduled monuments and listed buildings within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and operates 10 museums which collectively tell the story of the Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

The Trust is one of the largest independent museums in the world, earning national and international recognition for its work. More than 500,000 people visit the Museum each year, including 70,000 school children taking part in our award winning education programme. To inspire future generations, the Trust offers high-quality lifelong learning opportunities that allow visitors to engage with our industrial heritage through interactive workshops and activities.

The Trust aims to conserve, maintain and interpret the remarkable monuments to Britain’s industrial history that survive in the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. All of the Museum collections have been Designated of national importance. They include Coalbrookdale ironwork and engines, Caughley and Coalport porcelain, social history, art, archives, tiles and ceramics. The Trust also cares for woodland and countryside.

2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Museum and to ensure the preservation of our national heritage for generations to come the Museum has created a new Fund for the Future to provide a lasting endowment.

Please help to preserve our national heritage for generations to come by leaving the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust a gift in your Will.
