Limit search to Buckinghamshire.
Milton Keynes Museum Wolverton
#1 of 1 Museums in Wolverton
lovely friendly staff; what differentiates from other museums are the great hands-on experiences where you are allowed to use old equipment; also great are the many events and activities, e.g.
MK Museum is such a fun day out and we are lucky to have such a gem on our doorstep - however the dedicated and passionate team of volunteers are what makes this place truly special.
The National Museum of Computing Milton Keynes
#2 of 5 Museums in Milton Keynes
But really would love the two museums to sort out there differences...and place them all together.

Fascinating trip into another era when visiting natural history museums and zoos was the only way to experience wildlife from the more common to the extraordinarily rare.
I was amazed the prices were very reasonable compared to other museums I have been to.
Redbournbury Watermill and Bakery St Albans 28.9 km away

Nuffield Place Henley-on-Thames 27.3 km away

Don't visit if you want to see lots of Morris cars; for this you should go to the museum at Gaydon, but a visit here lets you look into the life of a remarkable man.
Buckinghamshire Railway Centre Aylesbury

The entrance is in the restored (and relocated) Rewley Road station building; it hosts a small museum with one preserved loco (currently Cornwall, dating from the 1840s and on loan from the national collection) an...

Stanley Spencer Gallery Cookham 26.2 km away
#1 of 2 Museums in Cookham
They have exhibitions twice a year and are currently showing works on loan from Aberdeen Art Gallery and Leeds Museums & Galleries; a great opportunity.
Easy to find museum, quite small but really good place to visit, best thing to do is to combine the museum with a walk around Cookham and visit the locations that inspired his pictures....
Wardown House, Museum and Gallery Luton 28.8 km away
#1 of 3 Museums in Luton
I think it's great to have something like that so the kids are used to visiting places like cultural centres and museums.
So this is the last day of the holidays and Wardown is one of our local museums.
Dorchester Abbey Dorchester-on-Thames 29.9 km away
#1 of 1 Museums in Dorchester-on-Thames
Came across the Museum, probably closing, but were nicely invited to step in by Anne Marie and her husband to visit the small little place with lots of history!
The abbey is well worth a visit and has a tea room and a free small one room museum going back to the Roman times.

Oxford University Museum of Natural History Oxford 31.6 km away
#1 of 20 Museums in Oxford
the university museum of natural history is a compact but broad natural history museum that, along with the other museums and galleries, makes Oxford a good visit rain or shine.
My partner and I are both teachers so we enjoy museums anyway but this has an amazn collection of natural history artefacts and plenty of hands-on objects, quizzes and interesting facts.

Pitt Rivers Museum Oxford 31.6 km away
#2 of 20 Museums in Oxford
Compared to so many museums which have pared down the range and quality of their ethnographic exhibits the Pitt Rivers remains a treasure trove of arcane and fascinating material hard to find anywhere else.
One of the best outside of the London Museums and more personal than The Ashmolean ... although the view from the roof of the Ashmolean is magnificent!

Verulamium Museum St Albans 30.9 km away
#2 of 6 Museums in St Albans
This is probably the best museum of Roman history in England (and certainly lot better than other Roman Museums I have visited in Europe and Israel).
As a fan of small, unusual museums, I'm always appreciative of museums that do one thing, but do it well.

This little museum in the heart of the beautiful market town of Old Amersham is a little gem, great for all information on local history, but also lots of fun things for the children to do!

This is one of our great museums and which has been restored to make its encyclopaedic collection more accessible and captivating.
