Permanent Exhibitions

From lead mining to red tape, whiskey to well dressing, our new galleries explore the fascinating history of Wirksworth and the people who live here. In these interactive displays you can see star items from the collection, piece together T’Owd Man and play our Stemples and Coes game (please note that our dream cave is currently unavailable to visit).
