The museum is full of interest , from the Victorian house , the school room. The air raid bunkers in the garden, the GPO/ BT telephone room, with all the different phones over the years, each phone has an extension number and you can ring them . There is a nice coffee shop and gift shop. A good family day... More

Took the kids there during school holidays and they loved it. What makes it good is the interactive experience. The telephone exchange section was really cool as the kids dialled numbers and played with the switchboard. The science room was cool with some interesting experiments and the old school room with the old fashion punishments brought home some the experiences... More

I love this museum, after all these years I still discover something new. It's very interactive too if you have children, but great for us grown ups who love trips into the past

When I suggested to my family that we visit Milton Keynes museum they gave me looks of horror. At the end of our visit they all said what an amazing time they had and would definitely go back. Every room has something interactive to do that kids and grown ups will love. My daughter loved toasting bread on the fire,... More

Live locally and had never been before. So glad we went. I went with a friend but it's an excellent place for children (of all ages!!). The setting is fantastic and on a good day, a lovely place to take a picnic. Lived in Milton Keynes for 24 years now and had never seen the Concrete Cows. They are gorgeous... More

This is a great place to take the children. Our two are 5 and 9 and really enjoyed it, this being their second visit in a few months - they were keen to come back. There are lots of interactive things for them to do, and the volunteer staff go out of their way to keep them involved and entertained.... More

When the kids can get the feel of what it was like in Victorian times as well as kitchen and others parts of the house. They have a telephone... More

Couldn't agree more - Christmas is a very special time at the museum. But we're not sure we're allowed to mention the C word yet, so best just to thank you for taking the time to review us here, and look forward to seeing you again :) More

Recently visited with grandchildren aged 9 and 12 years. A thoroughly enjoyable visit. The exhibits were great and the whole museum was well worth a visit and extremely interesting both for the children and adults. The volunteers were very helpful and knowledgable. No disappointment.
