A light brown path heads into the distance. In the foreground the long grass is full of different species of beautiful flowers. The grass bank leads up to a blue building which is the discovery centre. To the left of the centre is a smaller whilte building.

This July, August & September you can use your Museum ticket to visit the National Stone Centre (NSC) for free. Just place your Museum ticket in your windscreen and you will not need to pay to park at the NSC. You can explore this heritage park, follow the geo-trail to go back in time 330million years and wander the woodland paths. There are free toilets and a cafe with amazing views along with a Rock Shop. A new exhibition area about the Story of Stone will open later this month. Just put your Peak District Mining Museum entry ticket in your windscreen – it is valid for 7 days after you bought it and you can use it for as many visits as you like in that week. If you are going to take advantage of this offer do let our staff know as we are recording how popular it is.
