  • We enjoyed our visit here. There are a very wide range of exhibits on show and they are well displayed. There's definitely enough of interest here to make it worth a visit. 
  • Relatively small recently renovated museum but well worth allowing at least 2 or 3 hours for a visit. Excellent range of exhibits to suit all tastes and interests. Centrepiece is the Joseph Wright collection. Well worth a visit especially if you also have an interest in contemporary local celebrities, notably Richard Arkwright and John Flamsteed. Cafe also recommended. Freshly prepared fare. Reasonable choice at reasonable prices.
  • I really enjoyed the local archlogical finds. Lots of varied things for different intrests. Staff where helpful and welcoming
  • The new 'Notice Nature, Feel Joy' natural history exhibition is excellent, a shining example of a well thought out, publicly engaged delivery. The art on display is not varied, but is excellent if you come intending to see what is there. The old natural history section is seriously outdated and needs a lot of work, but I'm sure this is something they are aware of.
  • Great local attraction, child friendly and quite interactive for a local museum
  • Great for family... no dinosaur walk thru now though
