MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY
Don't miss what’s coming up
From the earliest days of Muffin the Mule, generations of children have fallen in love with
the characters and stories brought to life on the small screen. The exhibition traces the fascinating history of children’s television, bringing together seven decades of iconic objects, memorabilia, merchandise, clips and images.
Derby Museums are pleased to host this exhibition created by the Bosnia Herzegovina Community in Derby. 2016 marks 21 years since the end of the war in Bosnia during which more than 8,000 people were killed and several hundred thousand were forced to flee their homes.
Join Head of Museums Jonathan Wallis for a fascinating insight in to the Children’s TV exhibition.
