Expérience fantastique: It's free! Surprisingly big museum with lot's to see and lots to read. Not many activities for kids to do but still enough to keep older kids and adults entertained

Expérience fantastique: A lovely few hours spent looking around the exhibitions. And all for free! My son was particularly excited by the Egyptian mummies as he is studying this topic at school. Would recommend to anyone visiting Derby.

Expérience fantastique: Fascinating place with interesting exhibits in the museum, including a boat from 3,500 years ago. Also the Joseph Wright exhibition was interesting with other artworks of interest. We have taken the grandchildren to events there in the past and recommend keeping an eye open for future events. And it's all free!

Expérience positive: The museum is beautiful. It has ground floor and 2 other floors, it also has a lift. There was no tour guide. However, you could move around freely and see all that is there. I liked it.

Expérience fantastique: Last time I went here I was at school.. many years ago, this place has changed drastically and is far better for it. Firstly it's free, so there's really no reason not to go, even if you don't like it you've not lost anything. The museum staff are very helpful, friendly and approachable, they're happy to help and advise not only on the museum but other interesting places to visit in Derby. The displays are modern and interesting with some items in the open and others with signs encouraging interaction. The room displaying the history of Derby is in all honesty amazing, who would of thought that all those objects were found in the city....makes you wonder what else is buried under our feet. There's also objects from across the globe including the Americas, Egypt, South Africa, the Middle East, Australia, Asia and the Far East. There's also a world class collection of paintings by Derby's Joseph Wright. Absolutely superb, definitely worth visiting.

Expérience fantastique: A museum well worth visiting.Unfortunately, We only arrived an hour before it closed the door, and we didn't see it completely at all. Must go again next time. Take the children to broaden their horizons, and the museum is free.´・ᴗ・`

Expérience fantastique: We visited recently and were extremely impressed by the whole experience. The staff were professional and knowledgeable and the exhibits were extensive. The Quentin Blake galleries were fantastic, an altogether enjoyable visit, thank you, and the coffee in the cafe was superb, would certainly recommend.

Expérience fantastique: Just completed The Ram Trail. What a wonderful time. Great day out for Old and Young alike . You can walk as far as you want or as little. Plan your route and see more. We managed 27 out the 30. Coffee and cake, lunch or even a picnic to reduce the cost .

Expérience fantastique: Lovely place to visit with kids. So many different rooms and art galleries to see. Everything is very well organised and friendly staff who always very helpful. Kids loved exploring different places and things around the world history.

Expérience fantastique: A good museum to visit. We are lucky in the UK to have free museums and it is well worth a visit. An eclectic mix of exhibits and something for everyone. The paintings were good although I would say the lighting in the gallery is badly installed and some painting are hard to see due to reflections. There is a cafe. The museum entrance doesn't look big but there are quite a few exhibition spaces upstairs and further inside.

Expérience fantastique: Entrance is not through the art gallery door but a modern reception area at the other of the building which is fully accessible for both pushchairs and wheelchairs. This is the through the reception area which doubles as gift shop and there is a good selection of beautiful cards. The art gallery features the work of Joseph Wright a local painter and includes the famous picture of Arkwright of Arkwright mills. Very interesting local history section with local artefacts and discoveries including the cross from St Aulkmumds church which was pulled down to build St Auckmunds way. Good coffee shop which includes fantastic displays of local Derbyshire pottery including Crown Derbyshire and Denby pottery.i

Expérience fantastique: I have walked past this place many times without realising the significance of the place. I attended the brick history with Lego and I enjoyed learning about war, space, trains and culture through creative expressions with the bricks. It is recommended for people of all ages as kids were fascinated with the legos and adults identified with the history. I spent time in the world collection and saw lots of West African arts on display, I never really attached such importance to them and felt proud to be part of such heritage. It is completely free and staffs were very nice and helpful. Looking forward to the next theme! Thank you Derby Museum.

Expérience fantastique: Fantastic curation, local and world history by passionate staff, plenty of events. The Japanese ghosts exhibition has got to be seen, and the DaVinci sketches earlier in the year were mind-blowing

Charlie Breakwell 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: This is my local museum and I've been visiting for years! It's free entry so I visit often, they have lots of exhibitions and even have new ones every other month. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. There is also a gift shop and a cafe - since entry is free, you have pennies for a cuppa or maybe a little present. If you love art then they have a wonderful gallery. If you love animals, then they have a brilliant display of taxidermy - there's even a taxidermy fox on display that you can pat! There's a massive exhibition about war - with uniforms to try on and other interactive items, also lots of weapons to admire (my boyfriends favourite part of the museum) and loads more! This museum is definitely worth the visit!
