This is a real piece of history that would be of interest to children and adults alike. As the village itself is beautiful and set in a stunning location you can also spend the whole day here with a picnic and just wandering. The museum is full of interesting information and being able to walk around the village brought the... More

Eyam is a very interesting place to visit, full of fascinating facts and acts of bravery. The Museum has been well cared for and is a very moving place to visit, it has a great sense of atmosphere.....very touching.

The museum is small, on two floors, but it seemed to have a stair lift. It covered two periods in the village's history; the plague in 1665-66 and World War One. Both were equally interesting and moving. The story of the outbreak of the plague in the seventeenth century and the villagers' decision to isolate themselves is fascinating. Their fourteen... More

This is a small museum but worth a visit as well as information regarding the plague of Eyam, it included local geology, war time experiences, and a small shop.

A very informative museum, giving a good insight to the problems at the time. A good start to a day in Eyam - yes, it can be a full day's trip.

I read about this place on Trip Advisor. Someone wrote, 'do mot be fooled by the outside.' No truer words have been said. This is an excellent museum. Well crafted and set out. An amazing amount of information given in short, interesting bursts. It was my first stop before walking through the village and I was so glad that I... More
