Collections & Galleries

Derby Museums’ Collections of Making comprises objects and archives that chart the progress of Derby’s ongoing manufacturing history and the people who were involved in these industries.

From the world’s smallest engine run using a human hair, to a seven tonne Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine suspended in a new atrium above visitors’ heads, there will be 30,000 objects for the public to enjoy. With a treasure trove of objects displayed according to the materials from which they are made the museum will invite people to create their own journey through 300 years of making. More information coming soon.
