This lovely museum is built around one of the original farms to be swallowed up by the city that is now Milton Keynes. It's main feature is the farmhouse, where the rooms are fitted out in the Victorian era; and the journey follows through to a schoolroom, toy room, kitchens, and the most wonderful parade of old shops. It's a... More

Went last weekend after reading a few reviews. I was very impressed, particularly with the volunteers, who really brought the museum alive. Lots to see and kept my 4 year old sin engaged for hours. I can't say enough nice things and am looking forward to returning.

This museum consists of many buildings, housing very interesting and historical paraphernalia, including old trams,a Victorian kitchen, and telephones through the ages. Well worth a visit.

I live in Wolverton and thought I would walk up there and have a look. It is a fantastic place as it is the history of the local area. There is the old Tram there which used to run from Stony Stratford to Wolverton up until 1926. There is a row of shops made to look like the old fashioned... More

I've visited the museum a few times, and I'll definitely come again. It isn't one single museum but a range of collections, with great re-creations of Victorian houses, school, shops and farms, plus the interactive telephone museum and other interesting exhibits. The staff (volunteers?) are great - really enthusiastic and knowledgeable and happy to talk to you. The museum really... More

If you want to get in the mood for Christmas and see a really good Santa then this is the place to come with the whole family. Even my mother in law felt terribly nostalgic and loved it. There's a Victorian school to make crafts, a place to toast your own bread over a fire, a fantastic display of phones... More
