This year we’ve welcomed almost 125,000 visitors to Derby Museums through a varied programme of exhibitions, activities and commercial events. Highlights include The Story of Children’s Television from 1946 to Today, A Personal Collection of Vivienne Westwood Shoes at Pickford’s House and the start of the redevelopment of our World Cultures gallery. We were also delighted to welcome two new acquisitions to our fine art collection, the return to Derbyshire of two of Wright’s last paintings; A View of Cromford Bridge and Arkwright’s Mills. The Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill is being developed and co-designed in response to the needs of our heritage and our communities. In summer 2017 we reached a milestone as the development phase came to an end. The project is still on track to open the building in 2020, as the UK’s first Museum of Making.
