If you tire of Christmas shopping, need an escape from the freezing temperatures or just want to see a good exhibition then Buxton Museum can help (our shop is great for stocking fillers too). Two local schools have taken over the foyer, Gallery Two and the landing and their big, bold artwork is a breath of fresh air.
In Gallery One, you can see the stunning results of a project by Freefall Arts. Though Your Eyes is a journey through everyday life from the 1930s to the 1970s using a collection of home movies, photographs and memories from the public.
Both exhibitions are on until 24 December (closing at 1pm) and admission is free.
Not that you need any further reason to visit Buxton Museum and Art Gallery but the well-loved Wonders of the Peak closes for refurbishment on 2 January 2016. If you want to hear that bear growl at you one last time then now is your chance!
There’s more information about the exciting plans for the future of the museum on the Collections in the Landscape blog.
