Once described as "the most extraordinary district in the world", the Ironbridge Gorge is still a remarkable, and beautiful, place to visit today. A huge amount of early industry survives as furnaces, factories, workshops, canals and the settlements of Coalbrookdale, Ironbridge, Jackfield and Coalport.
There are ten award-winning Museums spread along the valley beside the wild River Severn - still spanned by the world's first Iron Bridge.
See the products that set industry on its path and the machines that made them. Watch and talk to the Museums' craftsmen and costumed demonstrators as they work iron, fashion china and glass, and bring alive the people who lived and worked here.
CORE is the first art exhibition on a large scale that has ever been exhibited at the Museums so this is an exciting venture for us all as we want to discover new audiences, interest our existing visitors and make CORE a huge success!

Back to work and back to CORE in what promises to be one of the most exciting years ever for the Ironbridge Gorge Museum.
With just 11 and a half weeks until the launch of CORE there is a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it in! This month will, as I previously blogged, see the technicalities behind the venue of CORE (a wonderful Victorian Engine Shop) being thrashed out to ensure that the space is properly blacked-out and the inter-linked projections will all be able to work.
We now also need to focus our attention on getting people to a point where they are so interested in CORE that they just have to come and see it. This is one of our real challenges as most of our visitors just will not expect a digital art exhibition to have appeared in the middle of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. Tips and advice on how to win these visitors over and how to attract those who just would never have even thought about visiting what can often be perceived as some 'boring industrial museums' (which the Ironbridge Gorge Museums definitely are not!!) would be most gratefully received.
If you're reading this blog and you have some brainwave ideas, advice or even want to know more about the exhibition or our Museums then please feel free to contact me :)
A very happy New Year to you all from everyone at the Ironbridge Gorge Museums!
