The Erewash Museum is a museum in the town of Ilkeston, Erewash, in Derbyshire, England. The building that houses the museum is named the Dalby House after one of the families who inhabited it, and has served as a school and a private dwelling.

The museum opened in the 1980s, and focuses on the history of the Erewash area, with exhibits covering World War II, archaeology, and the Stanton Ironworks.[1]
