Adopt an Object at Pickford's House


You can champion your personal favourite Pickford’s House hero by adopting it for a year, or adopting it on the behalf of a loved one.

As a Pickford’s House adopter you will receive:

  • An old fashioned luggage tag with a name of your choice on your object.
  • The opportunity to visit your adopted object anytime Pickford’s House is open, and go behind the velvet ropes.
  • A  certificate celebrating your new adoption

By adopting an object, you will be supporting the funding of family activities in the museum, ensuring that Derby Museums continues to be an inspiring place for everyone.

If you don’t see your favourite object on the list, or would like to find out more, get in touch, and we can see what we can do.  

 Please allow up to 14 days to receive your adoption certificate. 

Please add the name of your choice which will be displayed on the luggage tag at Pickford's House in the 'add a note' section when at the checkout. 

If you are Adopting an Object as a gift, please add the recipient’s name in the 'add a note' section when at the checkout. We will then send the certificate out to you with their name on it, which you can give to them as a present.
