Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood

Come and discover two contrasting experiences sitting side by side. Just 15 miles from Derby city centre Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood is two great days out rolled into one.

Discover remarkable 17th-century craftsmanship, exquisite plasterwork, wood carvings and classical story-based murals. Meet knowledgeable room hosts and volunteers and be amazed by the grandeur of the Great Staircase, the Long Gallery and the captivating story of this historic house.

The Museum of Childhood is a delight for all ages with something for everyone. Get up close with a screen-used Dalek, marvel at props from films like Harry Potter and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and take a moment to reminisce special childhood moments.  Watch your children discovering something new, or relive nostalgic memories. Journey through our collections, create stories, play with toys and share your childhood with others.
