  • Derby Museum is full of interesting exhibits, particularly of local interest - relating to the Roman occupation at Chester Green, and the legacy left by the Vikings. Royal Crown Derby China is also featured here. James Wright our famous, local artist, has many of his paintings hanging in the Art Gallery. A must see.
  • Interesting and well laid out.frequent new exhibitions . Helpful staff. Small shop selling a good range of gifts .Cafe serving good range of food (surrounded by museum exhibits of pottery and local china.)
  • Really interesting.excellent cafe. Nice exhibits. Maybe needs to be a bit more interactive for kids.
  • Really good local museum, lots of very interesting exhibits covering a wide range of local interests. Free entry, just make a donation.
  • Lovely museum. Tends to have a special gallery on. Good time for everyone of all ages.
