We looked forward to seeing the museum but unfortunately it was closed and will not reopen until March , we did have a walk round the village and church. Hopefully we will return in the future

Lots of information about the plague, as well as information about the war years. Lots of information boards to read, rather than artifacts, but very informative none the less. Friendly, welcoming staff. The shop didn't have much in, but that didn't detract from the experience. Entrance fee was excellent value and in fact, we actually made a donation as well... More

We thought we would pop in and be out again, just as quick. But this place was not gimmicky, but full of fresh ideas to get their message about the devastations the village faced. Currently their are WW1 artefacts and a soldier in full battle kit, with a video screen face telling what he was doing. There was so much... More

It's a beautiful village with a noble and tragic history of self sacrifice. You can't fail to feel moved by the story of how the plague decimated this small village and how they chose to isolate themselves to prevent the disease from spreading any wider. The Museum is staffed by enthusiastic people and though a little dated, it's worth a... More

The Plague Village Museum, Hall, Village and walks are a great way to fill a day with interest and exercise. Good for old and young and to learn how lucky we are in this day and age not having to face this type of plague.

The museum is small but packed with information, there is loads to read about the plague and the effect it had on the lives of individual families. It is this personal history that really brings it alive and allows you to connect with the past. For children there is a trail of things to find around the museum to keep... More

Visited with young children. We were not sure if it was appropriate, but in the end it turned out enjoyable for them as well, thanks to the excellent children leaflets. The staff were all very friendly, they are all volunteers so thanks a lot for giving up their days to show us round. While it is a short visit, it... More

You are unlikely to find yourself in Eyam by accident. If you want to learn more about the tragic and heroic history of this community the museum is excellent. Very interesting displays full of information. The museum is run by volunteers and they should be commended for what they have achieved.
