“Go back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Situated half way up a steep hill this small museum is a little gem. As i originally do not come from Derbyshire myself i found the local history fascinating. Art gallery has work by local artists for sale at reasonable prices.

A museum with character, a well presented museum with a good showcase of things to keep you informed.

“Perfect on a damp day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Rather strange mix of artwork on display, but, surprisingly, free entry and open on a Sunday. Several other visitors' comments in the comments book suggested they should charge!
