Museum to host Jubilee show

Buxton’s Museum and Art Gallery is to be closed for ten days later this month to allow refurbishment work to be carried out.

The museum, run by Derbyshire County Council, will be closed from Wednesday, April 18 until Friday, April 27, and will reopen to the public on Saturday, April 28.

The worked has been timed to coincide with exhibition change-overs to minimise disruption to both artists and visitors.

During the closure, work will be carried out to redecorate the staircase and toilets and install improved lighting on the landing at the building on Terrace Road.

When it reopens on April 28, the Museum will be hosting an exhibition on Sixty Glorious Years. It will look at how life has changed in Derbyshire since 1952 to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The exhibition will celebrate important events and local people’s stories over the decades.
