About the museum

The County Museum was founded by the Bucks Archaeological Society in the mid 19thc and was operated by the County Council from 1957. In 2014 we started a new existence as the Bucks County Museum Trust which receives regular revenue support from the County Council and Milton Keynes City Council and is governed by an independent Board of Trustees.

From its base in Church Street, Aylesbury the Trust seeks to distribute exhibitions, talks and activities across the County and is always interested in building new relations with Bucks partners. The Museum Resource Centre at Halton near Wendover is open by appointment and is the main collections store and HQ for the Museums Curatorial and technical staff.

The museum facilities are extensive and more information on any of them can be had by contacting us on the main museum telephone number 01296 331441.
