About Wirksworth Heritage Centre

We are a museum with a shop and cafe, events and activities as well as limited art space.

Our museum tells the story of Wirksworth, its history, people and industries.

Our shop supports the museum but also sells local produced goods, local artwork (we have an artist of the month) and have limited space for them to display their work.

Our cafe provides good quality food and drinks to meet the needs of the community and our visitors.

We have a studio space where we hold lots of activities and events such as Open Mic Poetry, Heritage Talks, Games night etc., but we also do themed guided walks. We hope we provide a community hub where likeminded people can come together.

We open 7 days a week, we also hold an alcohol licence.

Our centre has some paid staff, but we could not meet our needs without the numerous dedicated and hard working volunteers that work across our entire enterprise.
