Warmly welcomed and staff full of information. It is a small museum, much more "of the people" which we enjoyed. Spent over an hour there for free, although we did give a voluntary donation. A new area for us to visit, so this was very hellpful

We visited the museum whilst touring the town and visiting the crooked spire church. It was free entry, very informative about life in Chesterfield, and had spotless facilities.

The museum is free. It shows lots of interesting things that have happened in Chesterfield. There are some exhibits that are worth a careful look. There was also a nice video (about 10 minutes) of a local photographer who gave a little potted history of his time in Chesterfield. There were also a couple of special exhibitions where the exhibits were provided by locals and gave a feel for how everyday people lived. The art gallery wasn't my particular preference for pictures but it was ok.

I've been bringing my daughter since she was 5 and she's now 15. It's a must for younger kids to learn all about the local town esp the building of the crooked spire and every so many months new exhibitions are focused on.
