This is Milton Keynes museum but you'd be hard pressed to find much about the growth and development of the enw city - which is a pity because that's what alot of residents might be interested in. Instead, this is more about the history of Milton Keynes before the new city, and more quirkily - about the history of transport,... More

This is an undiscovered gem that caters for all. We were a mixed age group party ranging from 3 years to 60s all had an informative fun time. So many things are hands on eg the palour was a delight.The cafe had lovely homemade cake and we were made to feel very welcome. Will visit again

A real gem of a museum , it's set out as a Victorian house . It's great because you are allowed to touch and have a go on the items on display , something you are not normally allowed to do ! Like toasting bread on the open fire or playing musical instruments . My 8 year old and even... More

We had a marvellous time here with the 8 year old grandaughter. It was her last few days before her return to York and our visit was a last minute decision, very glad we did. Some great staff and having lived here in MK for over 20 years, was happy to learn more about it!

A wonderful museum that is well worth a visit if you are in MK. It tends to concentrate of 19th/20th century material currently on the whole (but this could change in the future under planned expansion) but what is has is very good. Excellent museum within in a museum of old phones (my kids always loved them to play with)... More

We took our grandchildren aged 7 and 8 last week. Our grand daughter had been before with Brownies and was keen to visit again. The whole afternoon was a delight. It's very hands on and child friendly. From playing the pianolla, to toasting bread on the fire, feeling lucky in the school room (they loved the cane etc) to using... More

An absolutely wonderful place to visit with children young or old!!! I took a group of 6 children aged from 5 to 13. Each one found their own "special" thing to do. We loved the brass rubbing activity in the "church" and the younger ones loved toasting bread over the fire in the Victorian kitchen. I was amazed to hear... More

We loved reading your review! Very many thanks for taking the time to write it and for 'getting' us. How fantastic that the children got so much out of it that they are pleading to come back. We'd love to see you all again :) More

A, dare I say it, cosy feeling, local museum covering the industrial and rural life of the area. Personally, I think most visitors will learn from their visit in an easy way

Thanks for your review Ron. We certainly don't mind being called cosy because we've always believed it is our volunteers and our visitors who make it! More
