Wondering what to do with kids in Derbyshire? Why not head off to Buxton Museum and Art Gallery for an educational day out. Discover the archaeology, geology, art and history of the Peak District. There’s always something new to see in our changing programme of exhibitions, events and workshops.
Wander and wonder through seven environments which will have all been lovingly created complete with appropriate sounds and smells. Start with a journey to where it all began with the ‘Big Bang’ before venturing through a prehistoric forest. Children will enjoy a trip back to the ice age to discuss Pleistocene animal bones and teeth from caves and quarries throughout the Peak District, go on a bear hunt and find evidence of sabre tooth cats.
Did you know there was once sharks in Derbyshire? How about hyenas? Why not head down and find out for yourselves? You may also be lucky enough to spot a mermaid on your visit?
Finally, why not become a Victorian Scientist, visit the Roman soldier and see if you can fit inside a Neolithic burial chamber?
As you can see, for a free day out with kids in Derbyshire, Buxton Museum & Art Gallery is a perfect choice.
