Visit Buxton Museum And Art Gallery

Firstly, the Museum & Art Gallery has some incredible collections for you to enjoy. Of course, there are permanent galleries. However, that is also a changing programme of exhibitions by visiting artists and from our own collections in our two temporary exhibition galleries. What’s more, it’s easily accessed and located in the heart of Buxton, Derbyshire.

For the most part, the permanent galleries showcase the core collections of the Peak District archaeology, geology, art and local history. Indeed, you can take a journey through time and find out more about archaeologist Sir William Boyd Dawkins, and other collectors, in a recreated study.

There is a changing programme of exhibitions during the year, that includes hosting shows by visiting artists and groups and curating displays drawn from the museums own collections.
