The County Museum was founded by the Bucks Archaeological Society in the mid 19th century and in 2014 started a new existence as the Bucks County Museum Trust. It is home to a large collection of objects gathered from all around Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes over the last 150 years – including archaeology, art, costume, coins, wildlife, plants and geology. It also houses a cafe, shop and a walled garden. The museum can take group and school bookings.

The museum is fully disabled accessible and has adapted WCs and induction loop facilities at the reception desk. Two lifts serve the first floor and most door openings are freely navigable.
