Whether you’ve read any D.H. Lawrence books, or simply enjoy a good story and visiting historic houses, come and visit our lovely museum where the controversial life of D.H. Lawrence began.
At the Birthplace Museum you can:
- Learn about family life in the mining community, which shaped Lawrence’s childhood and writing.
- See rooms where the family lived.
- View personal items and some of Lawrence’s original watercolour paintings.
When can I visit?
The Museum is usually open Tuesday to Saturday 10.00am to 4.00pm by guided tours only.
Visits to the Museum are by scheduled timed admission only, for small groups of up to 8 people. We are also sometimes closed due to a large group booking or an event. Please make sure you check that we are open on the day you would like to visit by calling us on 0115 9173824 and booking a ticket.
Tickets with the following entry times can be purchased:
The 11.15am and 2.30pm admission tickets will be available first and then the other tours will be available when these have been filled.
If you want to keep your day flexible you can just drop in and we’ll see if there’s space on the next tour, but to guarantee admission, at a time to suit you, please call us in advance to book.

How accessible is the museum?
Our lovely historic building does have some access limitations.
Please note that due to the restrictions of the Grade II listed building there is no wheelchair access to the upper floors. The tour requires visitors to use flights of steps. There is also low level (gas) lighting in the historic rooms and the rooms themselves are small.
