Flooding causes significant damage to the Museum of Making in Derby

Derby Museums is sad to report that the recent severe weather conditions have exposed the Museum of Making to substantial flood damage. Whilst the building was designed to withstand an element of flooding, and staff had worked tirelessly to move as much as possible off the ground floor, water levels were higher than predicted and the damage is significant. As a result, the interruption to the museum’s day-to-day activity is expected to be substantial.

The Museum of Making will be closed to the public whilst insurers are consulted, the damage is further assessed and a repair plan is put in place. In due course, the museum should be able to reopen its doors.
