Buxton Museum and Art Gallery

Visit Buxton Museum and Art Gallery to discover the geology, archaeology and history of the Peak District. Find out more in our collections.


Please note that Buxton Museum and Art Gallery closes for redevelopment on 5 September 2016. During this time we will be building the new galleries and improving access around the museum.

Look out for our opening dates in the spring of 2017 - hopefully in May.

Keep up with progress by following us on Facebook (opens in a new window), Twitter (opens in a new window) and through our two blogs Buxton Museum and Art Gallery (opens in a new window) and Collections in the landscape (opens in a new window).

Museum staff will be available by letter, email and telephone to answer enquiries. We will also be out and about so look out for the Pop Up Museum at venues near you.

Our thanks to all our supporters who are making this happen: Heritage Lottery Fund; The Wolfson Foundation; Arts Council England; and Museum Development East Midlands.

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