About us

Buxton Museum and Art Gallery is managed by Derbyshire County Council. The collections reflect the archaeology and geology of the Peak District, along with art and social history. There is a varied temporary exhibition programme and regular events, especially during school holidays.

Admission is free.

Opening Hours:

  • Monday: Closed (except summer Bank Holidays)
  • Tuesday to Friday: 9.30am to 5.30pm

Buxton Museum and Art Gallery will be closed from 5 September 2016 until spring 2017 for essential building works.

During the closed period we’ll be out and about around the region with our mobile museum, putting on events in other venues and testing digital content in the landscape – we’ll keep you updated with where we’ll be on our Twitter feed and Facebook page.
