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.

Hi, I’m Vicky. My husband and I live in Aylesbury with our three children; a 10 year old son, an 8 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. I (mostly) love spending time together as a family. We visit all kinds of places and we’re quite happy to drive a fair distance for a decent day out. A few years ago I decided to set up Free Time with the Kids as a way to share our experiences of these family days out. You know, the essential information you need to know before your visit that can be surprisingly hard to find out. Where do I park? How much will it cost me to get in? Are there any discounts available? Are there loos? Can I take a picnic or get food? My aim is to be your go-to guide for all your free and cheap family days out across Bucks, Beds, Oxon, Herts & slightly beyond. I really hope you find the reviews helpful. If there’s anywhere that you’d recommend please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch via Facebook
