Derby Museums is for the thinker and maker in all of us, whoever you are and whatever stage of life you are at. Across our three unique sites you will always find something to stimulate your curiosity, inspire your creativity and offer enjoyment and delight. Go to the What’s On page to find out about upcoming events and activities.
We work alongside local people and Derby’s communities to develop our exhibitions, displays and lifelong learning activities, always endeavouring to make our museums more meaningful, relevant and inclusive to our residents and visitors. Using our spaces and collections, we are committed to supporting the development of social and civic connections to address contemporary issues, tell relevant stories and build a sense of place.
You can continue to be part of our learning and community work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with our inclusive online activities. Participate in digital family making workshops, interactive sessions with curators, and creative classes from wherever you feel safe. Visit Derby Museums at Home to explore, make and play!
