The Erewash Museum

Here are a couple of pictures taken on one of my frequent visits to the Erewash Museum Ilkeston.

I like this museum. I like the exhibits on industrial life. I like the displays of works by local artists (Fred Riley, John Lally and others). I like the Victorian walled garden. I like the old agricultural machinery in the courtyard and I like the volunteers who sell home-made cakes in the Hayloft on event days. I like the fact that it confirms a long-cherished theory of mine that small museums are often the best ones. In case you`re in any doubt, I like this museum. 

If you think you might like it too, more details can be found at .
