Milton Keynes museum is full of exhibits from before computers. Best of all it is very hands on and able to keep the kids interested. I particularly liked the kitchen range that was fully operational, we were even encouraged to make toast on it. Around every corner is a memory that comes flooding back. My Grandparents house was bombed in... More

Lots of history, very interesting, lots for children to learn about, there is a room full of a variety of old working phones, a classroom and kitchen where staff will help children to have a go with things. There is plenty of room outside if you wanted to have a picnic. A tea room serves food and drinks a lot... More

It has very good local history great to go as a family. They have guides to take you around you can make your own toast and they are always developing the museum to make it bigger and better. Great tea shop with lovely fresh food. Worth a visit!

Hi Duke, and thanks for reviewing us. We're so glad you spotted that we are constantly trying to improve the experience and bringing in new things - thanks to our volunteers.

Interesting to visit, a surprising variety of things to see. Pretty spot. The house is fascinating to walk round and there is replica of an old street with shops at the back to browse through too. Nice cafe for a cuppa and a slice of home made cake. Spend half a day here in the fine weather or at Christmas.... More

Hi Diane and thanks for taking the time and trouble to write a review. We're especially pleased to see you telling others the 'low entry price is worth it'. As you say, these tickets are our main source of income and it costs an awful lot to maintain everything. Without our 200 volunteers we wouldn't be able to operate at... More

We have been here as a family on numerous occasions and have enjoyed a fantastic 4 hours every time. I have even camped here with 120 Beaver Scouts who all enjoyed a exciting "Night in a Museum".

Thanks Chris, and we think you deserve five stars for being brave enough to bring 120 Beavers to sleep overnight. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review and look forward to welcoming you and the family - with or without the Beavers - back any time! More

This museum is quite fun and well stocked ( if a bit confusing) We were visiting a friend locally and wanted to find out more of the transformation of a typical piece of English countryside into the brave new city of MK. There was a lot of history but no "time line" of the city's rise from the fields. I... More

Hi John, and thanks very much for visiting and reviewing us. It seems you may have missed the paragraphs in our Visitor Guide where we talk about our expansion plans! Up until now we have been volunteer-run and existed on a shoestring. But recently we have got Heritage Lottery Funding for two new galleries that will tell the full story... More

This was a wonderful place to visit, it's different because you are allowed to try a lot of things on display, so much to see, so much to learn, it was great to see things I knew about when I was little, there are people to explain how every thing works, you can spend 90 mins to 2 hours here,...
