Self-Guided Visits

Buxton Museum 1-2 hours Self-Guided


We offer alternatives to our museum staff-led workshops and activities. You can book a visit with your class to explore Buxton Museum and Art Gallery at your own leisure. Visits take place during normal opening hours and we suggest touring the museum will take between one and two hours. Subject to availability groups may be able to book a handling box of museum objects for use during the visit. These are themed around popular topics linked to the Wonders of the Peak gallery, for example the Stone Age. A series of school resources to help plan activities before, during, and after a visit to the gallery can be found on the Buxton Museum website. Just click here to find out more!
