Do It Yourself? An intriguing history of DIY opens at Derby Museum

From DIY TV programmes to current trends and ‘hacks’ on social media, this hands-on exhibition showcases DIY through the decades, reflecting the changing attitudes to our homes and encouraging a new generation of DIY-ers. It showcases objects associated with DIY and explores how DIY is changing as we learn more about the importance of sustainability and healthy living spaces and materials.

You’re invited to share your own DIY disasters on our ‘Bodge-ometer’ and make a medal for your home improvement heroes!

In partnership with the BBC as part of its #BBC100 centenary celebrations.
