The Museum was opened on 17th June 1990 by the Duke of Devonshire after 11 years of campaigning by local enthusiasts. During this time exhibits were acquired, mostly through generous donations from members of the public, classified and catalogued.
The museum is an incorporated registered charity managed by a Board of Trustees. It is accredited by the Arts Council and is a member of AIM (The Association of Independent Museums)
We regret there is no disabled access to the museum as due to the historical nature of the building access is via a flight of steps. We do not have refreshment or toilet facilities, but there are available within a few minutes walk of the museum.
