It's been a busy few weeks for Derby's Museum of Making, which has just reopened after suffering extensive storm damage last year.

But it's not all doom and gloom for the epic attraction, which not only had a stellar reopening but has now been nominated for a prestigious European award.

The Museum of Making has been put forward for the European Museum of the Year Award 2024. It is one of 50 museums up for the award across the continent.

Two other UK museums have made the list, The Burrell Collection in Glasgow and the Museum of the Home in London.

Winners will be announced during an annual conference at Portimão Museum in Portugal, in May 2024.

We can't think of a more worthy winner than the Museum of Making, which continues to be a huge attraction in the region.

The Museum of Making at the Silk Mill celebrates the area's rich history of innovation. The Museum of Making is located in the Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The museum reopened at the end of January after suffering extensive flood damage as a result of Storm Babet in October.
