Eyam and its museum are ideal for a family day out. The main public car park, with toilet facilities, lies directly opposite the museum, and a free car park, opened in 2009, lies behind and above the Council car park. The museum is therefore a good place to start your visit. Please ask at the desk for a free I-spy sheet or Quiz for the children to do as they go round. Nearest Station Grindleford 4 miles away
