Museum and Exhibitions

Museum: Home of our Ice Age Ancestors

Our Museum displays a number of objects unearthed at Creswell Crags. This nationally important collection includes primitive hand tools as well as the remains of several surprising species which you might not have known were regular visitors to Britain.

Artefacts have been sourced and brought together from major British collections to illustrate this most influential period of human history. Let this nationally important exhibition guide you through the story of life in the Ice Age.
