  • Toddler take over event was on today, it was also our first visit to the museum and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely visit again!
  • Visited the erewash Museum the other day with a friend to look at the Sherwood Foresters collection that was on display until December of this year to which I was expecting a little bit more with the regimental Museum being closed for refurbishment. The building as a whole really nice architecture Lee as an old stately home within erewash with the old kitchens sweet shop stables and I really enjoyed the interactive boards that told you the stories of individuals that worked within the house. They are a gift shop with various teams for children and a few military books in but if you haven't been to the museum before like I hadn't I would love to see further displays of the history of are awash with in that museum as it has plenty of potential.
