Buxton Museum and Art Gallery events

Events

We host a range of exciting events for all the family to enjoy.


Due to our temporary closure from September 2016 to Spring 2017, we're taking our mobile museum to events and venues around the Peak District. This will give you the opportunity to handle objects and try out our brand new web app.

All events are drop-in unless stated otherwise.

For more information email: buxton.museum@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 01629 533540.
