Buxton Museum and Art Gallery Review

On the eastern side of the Slopes, this museum contains a collection of Blue John stone, a semiprecious mineral found only in the Peak District, as well as displays of local archaeological finds and pieces made from Derbyshire black marble. There's also a small art gallery.
