With over 5 miles of material dating back nearly 900 years, the Record Office collection is a unique resource for studying geography, science, personal, local and national history, citizenship, art and design, and more in Derby and Derbyshire.
Our education programme brings learning to life by putting the pupils in the driving seat, to be detectives and develop research and communications skills. The opportunity to experience original source material captures the imagination so that topics become more real to pupils as they relate to the local information.
Did you know there are over 100,000 images of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire available to search for free at Picture the Past? They can also be downloaded for free for educational use.
