By Public Transport
The nearest railway station is Whatstandwell, from which it is a steep uphill walk of about 1 mile. Alternatively, there are railway stations, at Belper, Matlock and Alfreton through which East Midlands Trains operate regular trains to and from Derby. These stations are reachable by a local bus service. Unfortunately the Sunday and Bank Holiday 140 / 141 Bus Service to Crich no longer operates.
The Museum has a bus stop directly outside the entrance which is serviced by Littles Travel. All the buses are fully accessible. Buses run from Matlock (140), Ripley (141), Alfreton (140) and Belper (142). See the link: http://www.littlestravel.co.uk/timetables.html
