Lots of unexpected treasures in a low key museum. Check out the key collection! Also the art often local school in really impressive.

“Buxton's past brought to life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This attraction looks uninviting and small from the entrance but go in and there are loads of interesting things to see particularly on the first floor. You have to be an explorer to find it though because there are hardly ant signs to invite you in or to the exhibits - its as though the town council doesn't want you to see this hidden gem within. We spent a good morning there so persevere!

One of those places to visit on a rainy day. Within walking distance from our hotel.A bit like the tardis, bigger on the inside than outside.
