Exhibitions & Events

This year’s exhibition is Schools – Then & Now.

Visit the exhibition now until Sunday 29th September.

 This exhibition records the development of education here in Castle Donington, from the 1700s when it was provided by the church and chapels, long before compulsory and free education was introduced in the 19th century.



Annual Events

Medieval May Day Market

Monday 6th May, 2019

Every year, we participate in the village’s annual Medieval May Day Market, a full day event of market stalls, performers and music on Borough Street.

Look out for the Museum’s street stall of traditional games, visit our tombola and pop in to the museum to see the exhibition.

Santa’s Grotto

Friday 6th December, 17:30 – 19:00

Each year the village erupts with Christmas cheer as the Christmas lights are switched on, the market place is filled with carols, reindeer and snow and shops open for late night Christmas shopping.

Join us at the museum as it is transformed into Santa’s Grotto.

Entry is free for adults, £4 for children receiving gifts.
