During 2014-15 Derby Museums underwent great change. We opened the Joseph Wright Study Centre and now virtually all our work by the artist is available to the public. In March 2015 we opened notice nature feel joy, a unique natural history gallery co-created with over 300 members of the public, specialists and experts. To cap off the great year we were delighted to learn of the success of our £9.4m application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to transform Derby Silk Mill.
