Wonders of the Peak

The Wonders of the Peak tells the history of the Peak District. It shows how natural forces and people's lives have created the landscape we see today. You can explore the Wonders of the Peak at the museum, online, or in the landscape.


There's a lot for you to try out in the Wonders of the Peak experience:

  • You can explore a timeline of one million years of Derbyshire history – from scimitar-tooth cats and cave lions to prosthetic hips and a 25kg drill bit!
  • Visit the Wonders of the Peak website to explore our collections and those of our partners. Alternatively, visit Pocket Wonders on a smartphone or tablet to generate bespoke tours in the landscape.

For more information, contact the project team. email: CITL@derbyshire.gov.uk

The development of the Wonders of the Peak has been funded through the Collections in the Landscape project, supported by a £869,000 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant. Visit the acknowledgments page for a full list of donors and supporters.
