Our Mission & Purpose

Derby Museums is for the thinker and maker in all of us

Together we make museums for the head, heart and hands. We will do this by:

  • Being independent
  • Fostering a spirit of experimentation
  • Pursuing mutual relationships
  • Creating the conditions for well-being (helping people connect with others, keep learning, take notice of the world and give back to the community)
  • Proving that we are doing it

In 2023-26, we will:

  • Make Extraordinary and Exciting Work
  • Be Entrepreneurial and Inventive
  • Be Relevant to our Citizens
  • Be Good Stewards
  • Support the Ambitions for our City
