Derby Museums is an independent trust and organisation run for, and on behalf of, the people of Derby.
We provide a museums service, accessible to everyone, and are responsible for the curation of all the artefacts and works of art entrusted to us, and the buildings in which these are held. Our aim is to bring as many of these objects into the public domain as is practically possible and exhibit them in ways that delight and inspire.
We also run education and learning programmes, and hold events and exhibitions with the purpose of sharing knowledge and inspiring creativity and making amongst the people of Derby. As well as schools and student learning, we run many events for adults and groups, as well as families.
Our collections and the information we hold about them are as unique as our location and history; we are a city continually shaped and driven by creativity and innovation, located in a valley that changed the world.
