Although most of the museum team are busy building a new gallery as part of the Collections in the Landscape project, you can visit the space to see the work in progress and get involved. A few treasures from the art collection are available to see and there are objects from the museum too, some of which you can handle. A special event on Saturday 2 April called Animal Roadshow plays host to a variety of real creatures. You can book your place on Eventbrite.
Creeping Toad is a well-known local storyteller and workshop leader and no stranger to Buxton Museum. He is running an event at Castleton Visitor Centre on Wednesday 6 April called The House of Wonders. Based on the collection of Randolph Douglas, a.k.a Randini, this unique event is free and not to be missed. More details on Toad’s blog.
Like Creeping Toad, I’m a fan of Randini and his collection. I wrote a blog about him a couple of years ago.
