Creswell Crags Museum and Prehistoric Gorge

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.

Creswell Crags is a spectacular magnesian limestone gorge that straddles the border between Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. It is dotted with a large number of caves, fissures and rock shelters, many of which harboured secrets from our Prehistoric past. Archaeologists have been excavating these caves since the 19th Century, when the Victorians first discovered the artefacts that lay beneath the cave floors. So much material was excavated early on that many of today’s archaeologists now excavate the spoil heaps (rubbish dumps) of previous excavations to find any artefacts which were missed!

Dogs, on leads, are very welcome at Creswell Crags for walks around the gorge and Meadow. We have dog waste bins on site and we ask that you use them. We do not allow dogs inside the Visitor Centre or café, but they are welcome on the café terrace and in outside seating areas. We sell Frozzy’s (frozen yogurts for dogs) in the café and provide fresh water for dogs on the terrace outside the café.
