Buckinghamshire County Museum and Roald Dahl Children's Gallery



Buckinghamshire County Museum reopened in 1995 after a £4 million refurbishment, and is classed as one of the finest museums in the country.

Innovative, touchable displays reveal the natural and cultural heritage of Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes, for visitors of all ages.

The Roald Dahl Children's Gallery opened in 1996 and was described as 'Without doubt the UK's best hands-on museum for children' by the judges of the Gulbenkian award in 1997. Inside the gallery, youngsters can take a look at minibeasts inside the Giant Peach, invent with Willy Wonka, crawl along Fantastic Mr Fox's tunnel, and much more.

The museum cares for more than 100,000 items, in collections built up over the last 150 years from social and natural history, pottery, photographs to costume and lace.

Even the Museum buildings have a fascinating history, with parts of them dating back to the 15th century.
