The Museum was opened on 17th June 1990 by the Duke of Devonshire after eleven years of campaigning by local enthusiasts. During this time exhibits were acquired, usually through generous donations by 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 that there is no disabled access to the museum as access is via a flight of steps. We also do not have refreshment or toilet facilities but these are available within a few minutes walk of the museum.
