  • Nice museum where you can learn about Derby and it's history, some local artists work and much much more. Small shop on entering with friendly staff and then free entry to the museum. Small cafe with good food at reasonable prices. Throughout the year they have theme events, we attended when there was a showing of television childrens programs, which was brilliant. Give yourself at least two hours to look round
  • Lovely place. Fascinating. Lots of information about the history of the street where I live. Wheelchair accessible and the staff are very helpful and accommodating.
  • Really nice medium sized museum over three floors with free entry. they have some great permanent exhibits and a whole floor that changes periodically. Good place to pass a couple of hours, with a cafe too.
  • Very nice and interesting museum where you can learn about Derbyshire's history and origins. Many artifacts to look at and many of them to touch. Beautiful paintings, uniforms, guns and mummies! Absolutely recommend it to you
  • Very disappointing. As a child this measum and its collection gave me a love of social history. Now so little on display...
