How to donate items

We are interested in acquiring items which are of special significance to Ruddington’s history where there is a prospect of them going on display in the museum. It is advisable to contact the museum either by email or by telephone before bringing in any items as a potential donation to the museum. Any potential donations are subject to acceptance by the museums governing body.


The museum has ramped access for wheelchair users and the displays are fully accessible. If you would like to contact us in advance of your visit we will ensure that appropriate volunteers are on duty to ensure you get the maximum possible enjoyment from your time at the museum.

Research enquiries

The museum holds copies of Ruddington’s parish records, census records and municipal burial records, together with photographic and ephemera collections. If you are carrying out family or local history research and would like access to this material please contact the museum to make an appointment. Please note we have a limited capacity to answer research enquiries for those unable to visit the museum but will endeavour to offer assistance wherever possible.

Group visits

We are happy to accommodate group visits either during or outside of our usual opening hours.
