Craven Museum & Gallery has many collections, ranging from those that are regionally important, like the archaeology from Elbolton Cave, to local material from the towns and villages in Craven. The museum also cares for the nationally important Roebuck art collection, which was bequeathed to the museum in 1988. Other collections include costume, art, the natural world and a broad range of social history material dating from the 18th century (1700s) to the present day.
