Founded in 1967, the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust Ltd is a registered charity whose twin aims are 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 largest of the Trust’s 10 sites is Blists Hill Victorian Town, a recreation of an East Shropshire mining town around 1900.
As well as 10 museums, the sites in the Trust's care include a research library, a tourist information centre, two youth hostels, archaeological monuments, historic woodlands, housing, two chapels and two Quaker burial grounds.
