Derby Museum and Art Gallery

Silk Mill Lane, Derby, DE1 3AF. England


Extra Details

At the Derby Museum and Art Gallery, the works of Joseph Wright embody a spirit of discovery, stimulated by the 18th century Enlightenment. He painted scenes of science, experimentation and exploration and learning. Derby Museum and Art Gallery should elicit pleasure and joy from curiosity. It should encourage students to take notice of their surroundings, to marvel at the complexity of nature and to think differently about their world.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
