Enlightenment Exhibitions

Each museum will be holding their own Enlightenment! exhibition to celebrate the end of the project.

Buxton Museum and Art Gallery will showcase all the purchases from the project, from a souvenir patch box to a gentleman’s pantograph, you’ll see them all on display there. The exhibition at Strutt’s North Mill will put Belper’s innovations in context alongside what was happening elsewhere in Derbyshire at the time. The final exhibition at Derby Museum and Art Gallery will explore the Age of Reason and be an appetiser for a new permanent gallery opening at Pickford’s House Museum in 2014.
