Buxton Museum and Art Gallery

A museum collection 360 million years in the making …


In 2013, Buxton Museum & Art Gallery was awarded a Stage 1 pass by the Heritage Lottery Fund for the project Collections in the Landscape. The project explores digital access to the collections, not just inside the museum, but outside, where the archaeological and geological artefacts where found and where the artists sat to paint their pictures. We have created four digital trails as part of the project. Have a go and let us know what you think!
