Lovely museum with a focus on local history, telling the story of Derbyshire through the ages. Lots of interactive exhibits. We visited without our children but they would have loved it. Also great art from local students, an exhibition worth going to.

Excellent place on any day interactive and interesting The Standard of the display is top quality and has been carefully selected to maximise the impact. Opening up the museum and providing a lift is a massive improvement.

The museum has recently been refurbished and is well worth a visit, especially as it's free! The Wonders of the Peak gallery is very interesting with loads of excellent exhibits.
