On display at Darfield Museum are artefacts that Maurice Dobson left behind to be displayed in the Museum as well as two rooms that have artefacts that show Darfield's long industrial and social history. If you wish, a guided tour is available as well as space for groups and schools wanting to visit and look around the museum.
Refreshments are available in the Cafe-Gallery where tea, coffee and homemade cakes are available. There are also monthly exhibitions with local artists work on display. Free WiFi is available in the Cafe-Gallery.
The museum shop has on display many local products such as hand made cards, crafts and postcards. Children are welcome too with small toys on sale. Volunteers in our shop are happy to provide local leaflets and information about where to eat and other activities happening in Darfield.
In the Canon Sorby Room, you will find a host of artefacts which represent Darfield's past, including 'Mining through the Ages'. From a Rag and Chain pump to the more familiar Davy Lamps, there is a range of different pieces and photographs. We can arrange for a speaker to visit your venue and give an illustrated talk on these artefacts and more. For more information, visit our 'Contact Us' page.
