Explore Chesterfield Museum's Collection - CANCELLED


Explore one of Chesterfield Museum’s offsite stores which houses some of the larger items from the Museum’s collection that would be difficult to display in the Museum itself. This includes a Donkey Engine from Markham’s, an industrial vacuum cleaner from Donkins and a pottery wheel from Pearson’s.

The Museum tells the story of Chesterfield through its collection. An important part of its role is to care for the objects for future generations to enjoy. This walk explores how the museum looks after the town’s collection.
