Buxton Museum and Art Gallery hosts a changing programme of exhibitions during the year, which includes hosting shows by visiting artists and groups and curating displays drawn from our own collections.

Since 1982 we have run the annual Derbyshire Open art competition. The resulting exhibition is the highlight of our summer programme and a popular fixture in Buxton Festival Fringe.


We also work with artists and specialists from all kinds of fields to explore our collections in new ways. Find out more on our projects page and in our blog posts.

Guidelines on how to apply for an exhibition at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery can be found here.
