Eyam Museum

Shop icon Wheelchair access icon

When plague struck the village of Eyam in 1665, the villagers made the extraordinary sacrifice of isolating themselves in order to prevent the spread of this terrible disease.

The harrowing story is the central theme of Eyam Museum, which also tells the story of the village from prehistory to the present.
