About Discover Bucks Museum

The museum is a space to explore, learn and wonder about Bucks. You can find out about the stories of people and places in this area and beyond.  It looks after 130,000 objects telling the story of Bucks and beyond from 200 million years ago to the present day. 

In 2014, an independent trust took over the museum which Bucks County Council had previously run.  Of course, the change didn’t change our charity status and our charity name remains Buckinghamshire County Museum Trust, with registered charity number 1153345.
Graphic designer, Ravi Chandwani designed the new logo. He used vibrant colours, inspired by the Buckinghamshire coat of arms.
