As a village, it was first mentioned in the 15th century, but did not receive its town charter until 1962. In the Middle Ages Bukowno belonged to the Bishops of Kraków, and since its foundation until 1790 was part of the so-called Sławków Estate.

In 1795 it was annexed by Austria in the Third Partition of Poland. It was regained by Poles as a result of the Austro-Polish War in 1809 and became part of the short-lived Polish Duchy of Warsaw, and in 1815, for the first time in history, it was administratively separated from Kraków, as together with Olkusz, it became part of Russian-controlled Congress Poland, while the city of Kraków remained in Austrian Galicia. After Poland regained independence, in 1918–1939 it belonged to Second Polish Republic’s Kielce Voivodeship. Following the joint German-Soviet invasion of Poland, which started World War II in 1939, it was under German occupation until 1945. After the war it was transferred to the Kraków Voivodeship.
