Buxton Museum was honoured to receive a commendation at the 9th Derbyshire Heritage Awards last week. The new Kirk Ireton Hoard exhibit was awarded Highly Commended in the category Behind the Scenes at the Museum. The winner was a project at Bakewell Old House Museum called The Carpet Beetle Challenge. Well done, Bakewell!
Attending an evening of celebrations at Sir Richard Arkwright’s Cromford Mills last Friday was Derbyshire Museums Manager Ros Westwood, previous Assistant Manager Martha Lawrence and the local artist who created the innovative new exhibit, David Tucker.
The Awards are run by the Derbyshire Museums and Heritage Forum and celebrate the work taking place in museums, historic houses and heritage sites across the county. You can see the Kirk Ireton Hoard exhibit for yourself at Buxton Museum. Entry is free and you can plan your visit using our website.
