Excellent for a small, locally funded museum - staffed by enthusiasts and with a decent collection of artefacts - from Roman times to current. Great personal view of Bucks history including a 'working' kitchen where you are allowed to make toast over an open fire and special mention should go to the telephony section - allowing play with telephone exchanges,...

A hidden gem...not well.known. Friends recommended this as a good venue. A great day out , with excellent facilities. Plenty of picnic space, but a lovely tea shop as well. Exhibits are really well displayed. A lot of the displays I could relate to from my early childhood. A must for families to have an insight into a past era.

Thanks for your review Explorer. As I've written here before , we are trying very hard not to be a hidden gem but to get out the word that MK has a museum to be proud of. Every time someone takes the time to write a review here - as you've done - that helps us spread the word. So... More

MK MUseum is a museum of both rural and urban life in Milton Keynes. It contains a number of the lovely displays of e.g 50's domestic equipment that used to be a feature of Bletchly Park before they changed their format and it is so pleasant to see the old washing powders and foods as they were used by our...

I honestly think that today was the very best Museum visit that I have ever enjoyed and my inquisitive 5 year old would eagerly agree. The exhibits are well thought out and there are lots of opportunities to interact with settings and objects. What sprinkled the fairy dust of total joy on our day? It was the staff and volunteers;...

I cannot believe I did not know about the place!! It is truly amazing. It is very hands n for children, they can even toast bread on an open fire. It's not one of those museums where everything is behind glass, everything is out on show. There is a school which you can sit at the old desks, an Anderson... More

I had visited this museum around 10 years ago taking my parents and perhaps not taking the time to look properly at the exhibits and range of items on show. I had the pleasure of re-visiting the museum just the other day and this time I soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed a guided tour (supplied by a volunteer). Not... More

Lovely (very) local museum! Always lots to look at but when there is a 'themed' event even more interesting things to watch and see. Queen Victoria with her lady in waiting, Houdini escaping from a mail bag , beautiful dresses and soldiers on parade. Great day out and value for money.

Milton Keynes Museum is brilliant, we try to visit a couple of times a year and especially at Christmas. The Victorian Christmas is great, they have lots of activities on and the volunteer staff are amazing. My 8 & 4 year old always enjoy visiting here.
