  • We Love Pickford House, Spendid Building Always well Kept, Friendly Staff Spendid Events and Displays  more »
  • Popped in to visit the above but stayed to view more of the house. Spoke to two of the staff, both were helpful and very knowledgable about the house. Will visit again with the family.  more »
  • Friendly and helpful staff and well described rooms make this a small but interesting museum. Probably not worth a long journey but definitely worth the best part of an hour, more if interested in the...  more »

  • Tucked away a little off the beaten track, this is a real gem of a house museum. The rooms are really tastefully set up, allowing you to appreciate the architecture and a flavour of the house's history (without the tacky feel that often creeps into these things!). The guide that we encountered was extremely knowledgeable and had just the right approach; he offered lots of information and answered all of our questions, without being overbearing. Great that, without having to book any kind of tour, the staff provide this kind of service for visitors. The collections upstairs are a bit more wacky and were less to our taste, but fun all the same!
  • Particularly enjoyed the temporary Pentrich Rebels exhibition, but this is a super, well curated restored town house museum
  • Wonderful house to visit. The inclusion of photography made it even nicer.
  • Live near Derby but never been here until now! It's lovely all the staff are lovely lots of history and it's FREE
  • Great place for adults and children to learn about local history and the way people lived.
