  • 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
  • Was very intetesting. Want to go again
  • Mr. Pickford's house is a slice of domestic history held in time for us all to see and experience. Another must see..
  • Great example of the old ways of living.and free!
