Why visit Eyam Museum?
Our visitors are frequently surprised to discover how much the Museum has to offer, often describing it as a ‘tardis’ – seemingly much larger on the inside than on the outside.
We have used the space to explain the Eyam Plague story fully, and also to look at plague more widely throughout history. We look at when and where it happened, where it came from, how it spread, and how many people were killed.
We then bring the story up to date, explaining what we understand nowadays about the plague, where it still happens, and how it can be controlled. We also show, by applying today’s understanding to what happened 350 years ago, why some villagers are thought to have survived; and most surprisingly what we can learn from their descendants in the village today about modern day disease.
The Museum tells their story. Read More
