Like all museums, we have a large amount of collections in storage. We try to get stuff out and on display as much as possible and an important part of this, is the museum cases that we have in nine libraries across Derbyshire. This means that communities from Long Eaton in the south of the County, to Glossop in the north, get the chance to see our collections in their local communities.
I am busy preparing a display of Ashford Black Marble (ABM) to go on display in Alfreton Library. We have a lot of ABM on display permanently in the museum, but we still have some lovely pieces in storage.
‘As an ex-potholer I have been inside the mine. It is incredible to see the finished product’.
‘Beautiful display and especially interesting as we had not heard of Ashford Black Marble before this!’
The display in Alfreton Library will run from the 9th of April until July. Let us know what you think.
