Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge Museums will celebrate international World Heritage Day today.
Set within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site in Telford, visitors to the museums on Tuesday, 18th April can join in a range of family fun activities as their Easter holiday programme continues. At Enginuity you can meet a number of mini-beasts at the Exotic Zoo where there will be daily shows with snakes, spiders and other exotic creatures. At Blists Hill Victorian Town the animal theme continues as visitors are able to see some farmyard favourites including pigs, sheep and baby chicks. The highlight will be the heavy horses on display with harnessing and tail plaiting demonstrations. For those with a creative side there are plenty of craft activities available at Coalport China Museum and Jackfield Tile Museum.
