Museum of Making – bookings now open

Museum of Making Bookings Open

General admission (free)

Entry to the Museum of Making is free but, due to current Covid restrictions, visitors need to pre-book timed tickets for general admission. Special exhibitions are charged and we encourage you to buy these in advance (please see below).

Special exhibitions (prices from £2.50)

Our current special exhibition, Scale, is charged* and also needs to be booked in advance.

*Scale will be free for everyone to visit on the first Sunday of each month. For those dates (6 June, 4 July etc.) you will only need to pre-book general admission tickets and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  

Please select the relevant ticket option below (either free entry or free entry + Scale):


We recommend that you book online in advance of your visit. If you don’t have a ticket, we will try our best to accommodate you, but only if there is space. Please be aware that you may have to queue.

From 1 June, we will be releasing a new batch of tickets every Tuesday for admission the following week.

**You do not need to pre-book tickets to visit Derby Museum & Art Gallery, please see more information here
