We visited the County Museum and Roald Dahl gallery next door, and they were both excellent. There were a number of very interesting displays, with many of them being interactive. The lego exhibition at the Museum was very good and kept the children very occupied.

First visit - shameful to admit, was tempted by the Frink exhibition which was very interesting. Quirky rooms, interesting, lovely little shop and café with a delightful garden.

Was a great way to spend a couple of hours. As we are new to Aylesbury we thought we would have a nosey around. Lovely setup. Lots of history about The Chilterns and Aylesbury of course. It has lots of hands on exhibits for children...More

We always use upper hundreds car park which is a pound an hour or 1.50 on Sunday's and bank holidays. HP20 1RS. This is only a short walk from gallery but you will have to walk through town.
