Icebergs, Algae and Dalmatians – Wirksworth’s Titanic Survivor’,

Featuring a genuine piece of the infamous White Star liner, the exhibition also explores the fascinating web of Lawrence’s other achievements and connections.  It’s a true case of ‘well, I never knew that!’  

Admission is included in our general museum ticket price, and ‘Icebergs, Algae and Dalmatians’ is on until 3 January (please note our current reduced opening hours https://www.wirksworthheritage.co.uk/visit-us/visiting/
