    Life in a Lens is a museum presenting all aspects of photographic history
    from Victorian times to more recent years. The museum is very atmospheric
    and is set in a renovated Victorian house in the middle of North Parade in
    scenic Matlock Bath. As well as having large collection of photographic
    items including cameras, postcards, and packaging, there is a collection of
    mannequins in original vintage costume to add to the atmosphere of days gone
    by. The museum is very popular with all age groups and is presented to be of
    interest to all the family.

    The museum is set on the first floor of the building and is accessed through the Victorian Teashop (see below). The exhibits are arranged in a series of themed rooms such as the seaside room.


    Life in a Lens is open most days between 12.00pm and around 5.00pm (often
    later during the season). Phone to be sure if you are making a special trip

    Life in a Lens also runs a live web cam featuring the famous 'Jubilee
    bridge' of Matlock Bath, just across the road from the museum, see ...

    The Victorian Teashop is a very popular stop for many visitors to Matlock Bath and also helps to support the museum. The Victorian Teashop is at the very heart of the village and has some charming views. The Victorian ''Jubilee bridge' is just across the road and beyond that the wonderful leafy and undulating hillside of Starkholmes. So, if you want a peaceful retreat from the summer crowds or somewhere warm and welcoming during the winter, why not pop in! The Victorian Teashop sells a wide range of food and drink, not just tea!
