Buxton Museum

Buxton Museum and Art Gallery

Visit Buxton Museum and Art Gallery to discover the geology, archaeology and history of the Peak District in our Wonders of the Peak time tunnel (find out more in Collections).

There's always something new to see in our changing programme of exhibitions and new things to experience in our events and workshops.

Find out more about the coin hoard discovered in Reynard's Kitchen Cave in Dovedale from our Collections News.

Our latest venture, Collections in the Landscape, has produced four digital trails. Why not try them out (opens in a new window) and let us know what you think (opens in a new window)?

You can also join our mailing list to find out more.
