In between the basement kitchen, with its strange equipment, and the maid's simple room right at the top of the house, are several floors with rooms set out as they would have been in the past, along with examples of costume worn at different times in the history of the house. A fascinating place for adults and slightly older children... 更多
We always enjoy our visits here. Its so peaceful. There are many lovingly decorated rooms to explore. You have to linger a while, (children permitting on this occasion!) to take in all the details and beautiful furnishings. Plus there is also a small but perfectly formed playroom, a pretty walled garden, two period toilets for public use, a charming gift... 更多

Thank you for your lovely comments and just want to say we are not a National Trust property. Our lovely... 更多
We were expecting a lot more from the experience. One could see everything in less than half an hour.

This museum suits all ages. Very good. Lovely people. It's a pity our councilors want to reduce funding, so that they can spend more money on their offices and enjoy holidays in Beijing.
Really glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you saw the house decked in all its festive splendour based on... 更多
Went during the half term holiday with family of varying ages and the museum was enjoyed by all. I liked the clocks part as this is a big part of Derby's history and the house is very well kept. Also activities for the children.
The 'Clocks and Rock's exhibition is really lovely and is all about John Whitehurst. The clock making business that he... 更多
