The museum is located at Terrace Road, Buxton, England. The museum opens Tuesday to Saturday all year round and from Easter to the end of September is also open on Sunday and Bank Holiday afternoons. Admission is free. The building was erected in 1880 and originally served as the Peak Hydropathic Hotel. During the First World War, the Red Cross used it to care for wounded Canadian soldiers.

  • Well laid out in all areas. Best to make a reservation as time slots get pretty full at certain times. Really interesting items/artwork throughout your visit to see.
