MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY
Don't miss what’s coming up
We’re delighted to be showing a new body of work made specifically for the gallery by sculptor Denis O’Connor. His small-scale steel sculptures reference the notions of ‘home’ and ‘displacement’ and are influenced by over 25 years of journeying between his home in Derbyshire and his home in Ireland, the country of his birth.
Come and meet the team behind the exciting developments of the new Nature Gallery. Discuss the progress so far, find out about ways to become involved in future projects and get hands on with some nature inspired activities.
Join Alexandra Koufali to create sketches observed from a life model. A unique opportunity to draw in an inspirational environment.
It’s self-portrait day at Tots Make & Do, we will be making collage faces from paintings in our collection. Have a go at making someone who looks like you and the people you know!

We’re developing a beautiful new nature display at the Museum & Art Gallery. Things in the space will change day by day, as we empty cases and pack the objects to keep them safe and sound before they move into their new home. Sometimes you’ll be able to take a peek and see us packing up the specimens. Other times we may need to close the gallery to keep you safe. Please call 01332 641904, ahead of your visit, to find out our plans for the space that day. Thank you for your cooperation.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience.
