The Silk Mill (Derby's Museum of Industry and History) venue photo

The Silk Mill Museum is on the site of the world's oldest factories, the Silk Mills built by George Sorocold in 1702 and 1717. The foundations and parts of the tower from the 1717 mill are still visible.
The displays tell the story of the industrial heritage and achievement of Derby and its people. There is a special emphasis on the development of Rolls-Royce aero engines and the railway industry. Other displays cover local industries such as mining, pottery and foundry work. The Power Gallery covers the story of motive power in industry with hands-on exhibits.
