Friends of Buxton Museum and Art Gallery

The Friends of Buxton Museum and Art Gallery is an independent group. It supports the museum and runs interesting social events.


It was set up to:

  • involve people in the life of the museum
  • promote lifelong learning
  • encourage interest in science, art and history across all ages
  • raise funds for museum projects

The friends organise their own programme of talks and visits and members contribute to the smooth running of meetings.

Benefits of membership

  • free monthly talks by notable speakers followed by refreshments (guests pay £3 per talk)
  • occasional visits to places of interest
  • invitations to previews of the museum’s temporary art exhibitions
  • opportunities to volunteer with the museum and its collections

Programme of talks

It is with regret that, due to the coronavirus outbreak, The Friends of Buxton Museum and Art Gallery have had to cancel their programme of lectures for the spring of 2020. A new programme will be announced for the autumn soon.
