Derby Museum & Art Gallery

Free Entry

Derby's Museum and Art Gallery is home to the largest collection of Joseph Wright paintings in the world as well as a huge collection of intriguing treasures including an Egyptian Mummy!      

Joseph Wright of Derby is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and innovative British artists of the 18th century and is recognised for his exquisite use of light to capture the spirit of the Enlightenment; a period when art, philosophy, science and industry seemed to be part of the same story.

The Museum is home to some of Derby's best kept artefacts and treasures including a large display of Royal Crown Derby and other porcelain.  There is also a temporary exhibition space.
