A trip to Ironbridge Gorge Museum
Since lockdown begin, as a family we have only traveled a few miles down the road to our local parks. This has become our safe place, we know what to expect and where to go to find a quite place to roam. With lockdown easing and attractions beginning to open in the Midlands we decided to venture a bit further to Ironbridge Museum. I have to admit we all felt a bit nervous to experience what the new normal really means.

Our day out at Ironbridge Museum
We visited Blists Hill Museum (part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum group). Blists Hill is a recreation of a Victorian Town. There's so much to see including a pharmacy where you can learn about Victorian toilet roll, a bank to visit and a school house featuring a rather frightening teacher! The clear favourites with my two boys were the traditional 19th century sweet shop and the fish and chip shop selling the most delicious food.
We really enjoyed our day out to Blists Hill Museum. There is so much to see, do and learn that this is a full day of fun. In terms of the new normal, that we all have to adapt to, there have been lots of measures put in place to put you at ease as you enjoy your day.
