Erewash Museum is a social history museum with exhibitions and displays reflecting the history of the Erewash Borough.

Home for the Museum is a late Georgian house with Victorian extensions. It was both a family home and school accommodation before becoming a museum in the 1980's.

Many original features remain and visitors can enjoy the garden with unrivalled views across the Erewash Valley.

We are open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am – 4pm (last entry at 3.30pm). During school holidays, with the exception of Christmas and bank holiday Mondays, we are open Monday – Saturday 10am – 4pm.

Admission to the museum is free.


  • The museum is a Grade II listed building dating back to 1860.  We have tried to ensure as much of the site is accessible to wheelchair users as possible.  A recently installed platform lift now provides access to the Hayloft Activity Room.  The only areas that are not accessible are the upstairs galleries.  If you are planning a visit and would specifically like to see an object from the first floor rooms please call in advance and if it is possible to move the object for your viewing, we would be happy to accommodate this.  
  • The museum has a very small car park- one space is available on site for Blue Badge holders –  subject to availability.  
  • Universal access toilet on site
  • Assistance dogs are always welcome to the site
  • Hearing Loop available, please contact us for more details
