Eyam Museum is a museum about how, in 1665, the bubonic plague hit the village of Eyam in Derbyshire in the heart of the Peak District.
This small museum has displays about the history of the bubonic plague in general and specific detail on how it came to this village and the story of it’s progress and the aftermath. There is also information on how the village eventually recovered from the loss of so many lives. The museum features visual imagery, documents and artefacts to retell the story.
