Welcome to the Heritage Centre for Wirksworth, a fascinating and quirky market town on the southern edge of the Derbyshire Peak District – a place where geology and industry have shaped its character and the lives of its people for generations. For over thirty years, Wirksworth Heritage Centre has been telling its story.
The Heritage Centre is now undergoing a major redevelopment project – supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund – to relocate and create a new venue to house our museum collection and exhibitions illustrating the story of Wirksworth and its long heritage.
Our new programme of events and activities already offers lots for visiting groups, children and families, including walks and talks, workshops and entertainment – please check our What’s On page for more information.
The Heritage Centre and Shop are open daily from 9am to 5pm, and our Cafe 9am to 4.30pm.
Our new museum will be open in early April 2019. We look forward to seeing you.
