Pickford's House

Derby Museum & Art Gallery & Pickford’s House are currently closed until further notice to comply with Government guidance. The Silk Mill is undergoing refurbishment to become the Museum of Making. Please visit our News page and social media for further updates. 

Hidden amongst the gorgeous old buildings and cobbled pavement of Friar Gate sits Pickford’s House; the professional showcase and family home of Georgian architect Joseph Pickford. Now the museum illustrating aspects of domestic life from the 18th to the 20th centuries, Pickford’s House shows the contrast between the master and the servant, the grandeur of Georgian architecture and the changes that occurred in the house over its 250-year life.

Monday: Closed
Tuesday-Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sunday: Closed

In our weekend makes for children, we explore different arts and crafts processes inspired by our collections with the support of a short video and activity sheet
