Temporary museum closure due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Regretfully we have had to take the decision to close the Derwent Pencil Museum, re-opening for October half term (26th – 30th October). Following the half term holiday, we will close again until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming visitors back, please subscribe to our Newsletter for updates about re-opening.

Update: 19th March Museum due to reopen on the 1st May

We are delighted to be able to reopen our Pencil Museum on 17th May, all being well with government regulations. We will have in place Covid-safe procedures to keep our staff and visitors as safe as possible whilst giving our visitors an exciting and interesting experience. 

Our Museum attracts over 80,000 visitors a year with an interesting exhibition of pencil manufacture, local history, a food and drink take-away service, retail space showcasing Derwent products, art demonstrations & workshops.

To prepare for the reopening, we are now recruiting two positions for a 4th May start. For further details on the vacancies please click here.
