It was unfortunate that whilst visiting Buxton we found the museum part of the building closed. However we did visit the art gallery on the ground floor which contained work from local college art students. The standard was excellent.

A wonderful display of the peaks and their history. Spent a good hour here and it's free. Suitable for all ages from 12 to 100.

Live not too far away from Buxton and always visit this gallery when in Buxton shopping. Exhibitions change on a regular basis and vary but usually thought provoking. Would definitely recommend

Strange little museum at the top of a hill. Could do with freshening up and bringing in the 21 century.

Full of hidden treasures and local history, friendly staff and dry place on a rainy afternoon. No admittance charge, but good to see the support this's local place gets, gives a real feeler of the area and people.

Very interesting as a school trip for juniors! I feel the staff must have done something really bad to be trapped there.
