Discover Bucks Galleries

Five new galleries packed full of objects and activities will delight and amaze visitors of all ages. Your journey starts 200 million years ago in Discover Bucks Geology, where fossils reveal the prehistoric creatures that swam in Jurassic seas and giant Woolly mammoths that lived here during the Ice Age.

In Discover Bucks Archaeology meet the earliest people to arrive in Bucks, discover a spectacular 3000-year-old Bronze Age sword and the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon coins ever found.

Discover Bucks People features a spectacular costume case displaying a Sikh wedding dress, an extraordinary piano and fascinating objects tell stories about people from different communities.

In Discover Bucks Art enjoy the unique visual story of Bucks through artists past and present, including portraits, landscapes and the magnificent Stowe statues of Saxon gods.

Kids and adults will love the hands-on discovery including measuring themselves against a Neanderthal, touching a mammoth leg bone and feeling the weight of a Bronze Age sword.

Discover Bucks Wildlife is due to open later this year but already features an intriguing Black Poplar Tree waiting to be explored.
