The story is very well told and it is very moving understanding the sacrifices made by the villagers. Staff in the museum really helpful and friendly. We had a walk round the village afterwards and already knowing the story it made the visit more real.

Really enjoyed our visit to the museum. Lots of information and details to take in. Worth making sure that you watch the short film, which is shown every half hour.

It is only a small museum but is well planned and full of facts about the plague and this year they have a display about the war. Well worth visiting before you start your walk around the village. Eyam is a lovely village.

So much information,in such detail that we had to have a short break and then continue.. It was beautifully presented...Very interesting but a good idea to get there early as it can get crowded.There is a free car park opposite behind the paying one..

A great little museum. Lots of information to read and interesting displays. The video is well worth watching especially for children as it explains Eyams part in the Plague really well.

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. We allow dogs into the museum if they can be carried. Otherwise they can be tied up outside with a bowl of water.

Sorry but have no idea on this. As it`s staffed by volunteers, I would think that there is a good chance that it will be open, but please check with the venue before travelling.
