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 our collections.


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

Our latest venture, Collections in the Landscape, is transforming the way visitors can access the collections, both in the museum and online. To find out more or get involved visit our dedicated project page or blog (opens in a new window).

From 4 January 2016 until Spring 2017 the Wonders of the Peak gallery will be closed for redevelopment. However, visitors will soon be able to access our Project Space to discover what we're doing, and how to get involved.

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