Toy Box is the latest exhibition at Bucks County Museum and it replaces Reincarnated Rubbish. If you’ve not been before Bucks County Museum is based in the heart of old Aylesbury and is completely free to visit. Some exhibitions at Bucks County Museum have a charge but Toy Box is free. You can read the full review of the museum here and the review of the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery, which is on the same site, here.
The exhibition is in the gallery upstairs, but there is a lift for access.
Of the exhibitions that there have recently been at Bucks County Museum, Toy Box is the most interactive of them all. As the name suggests, this is all about toys, specifically those since 1960. There’s loads of the most popular toys, books and games from past decades. Some of them have been donated by Dead Universe Comics just down the road.
One thing I particularly like about this is that they’ve set up lots of games for kids (and adults) to play. There’s miniature golf, duplo, a train set, giant jenga and a puppet show. We ended up spending ages playing with the duplo (no surprise there).
As with all the exhibitions at Bucks County Museum it’s not huge, but there’s plenty there to keep the kids entertained for quite a while this time. Once you’re done, make sure you have a look around the museum itself, or check out the Children’s gallery.
Entry to both the museum and the exhibition is free. There is an admission cost for the separate Children’s Gallery though.

I’m Vicky and I am a mum of three living in Aylesbury. I set up Free Time with the Kids to review free and cheap family days out in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire, mainly because I kept forgetting all the fabulous places that were recommended to me!! I love getting out and about with the kids (and hubby of course) and we have adventures all over the place. My reviews tell you all the things you need to know about the family days out and activites we’ve done such as how much it costs, if there’s parking, toilets and if there’s a cafe or if picnics are allowed. I really hope you find the reviews helpful. If there’s anywhere that you’d recommend please get in touch email@example.com or get in touch via Facebook
