Derby Museums’ three sites (the Museum & Art Gallery, Pickford’s House and the Silk Mill) are temporarily closed until further notice. Please visit our website and social media channels for updates. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with enquiries. We look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe for us to do so.

Although the front of the house may look like the entrance to our museum, our visitor entrance is to the right of the building up a ramp, so that it is accessible for everyone. We open the front door to our visitors for special events.
Access and facilities
At Derby Museums we want everyone to be able to enjoy our exhibitions and events, and we have taken every measure to ensure that we are as open and accessible to as many people as possible. Read our access statement.
Our brand new shop located in the Brewhouse is now open at Pickford’s House. This is a wonderful space full of traditional children’s toys, souvenirs and gifts inspired by our beautiful garden and all things craft.
Every gift bought in our shop helps keep Derby Museums fantastic and free for everyone!
