Museums & Galleries
There’s loads to discover at the diverse art galleries and museums in Derbyshire and the Peak District, so why not soak up some local culture? A great place to start is a day exploring and admiring the internationally renowned collection by Joseph Wright at the Derby Art Gallery & Museum. This includes many of his most famous pieces, such as the A Philosopher Giving that Lecture on an Orrery, in which a Lamp is put in the Place of the Sun, and An Alchymist.
Another great museum in Derbyshire is Royal Crown Derby’s museum; see the finest historic examples of Royal Crown Derby and take a tour to find out how the factory runs.
If local history is more for you, why not take a step further back in Peak District History, to the time of the lead miners at the Peak District Mining Museum or even further back to prehistoric times at Creswell Crags.
