The museum is in Ilkeston town centre, a short walk from the Market Place. For more details contact 0115 907 1141, email [email protected] or visit the Facebook page /erewashmuseum

Erewash Museum is based in Dalby House at Ilkeston, a late Georgian building with Victorian extensions that was previously a family home and school before becoming Erewash Borough Council’s museum in the 1980s.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “There have been reports over the years, from our team and visitors, of unexplained activity at the museum, so this promises to be a very interesting evening.

“This is a serious investigation and not for the faint hearted – but if you’re brave enough it will certainly be a spine-tingling experience!”
