The Wolverton to Stony Stratford Tram was the highlight for me. The telecommunications equipment is also very good. The Grandchildren were very interested and stayed that way !!

We took two children, 9 and 12, to see Father Christmas at Milton Keynes Museum because it was cheaper and had available, suitable times. Frosts and The MK Centre are booked up very quickly and I do not think are good value - especially as the adults have to pay too to watch the children. Here you all pay the... More

Jane M, Public Relations Manager at Milton Keynes Museum, responded to this review

Thanks ALison, we'll take that on the chin. I can tell from your review exactly when you visited as our first two Victorian Christmas weekends were quiet enough for everyone to spend as much time as they wanted carol singing and doing crafts and all the other wonderful things our volunteers organise. It's great that you are still so positive... More

I went to the museum with my daughter and grandaugher who was 2 at the time. My grandaugher is bus mad and was able to sit in the drivers seat of a 1950s bus which she loved. I found it to be interesting as the exhibits ranged from recent to the old. A lot of the items could be handled... More

Thanks Homeboy for your lovely review. It's great to hear that all three generations found something to interest them and it's lovely when the older generations see things they recognise and are able to share their memories with the youngsters. Look forward to seeing you again! More

Jane M, Public Relations Manager at Milton Keynes Museum, responded to this review

Thanks Julie. Heritage Open Days happens every year and is four days when the museum is free entry. We always see a LOT of visitors over those four days and hope they'll see enough to want to come back as paying guests - especially as the ticket (if giftaided) is valid for a whole year of re-entry.

We love this museum, always leave knowing more knowledge about certain things in the museum. The staff are lovely and always willing to answer any questions. We especially love the Victorian Christmas experience, we will visit again soon.

Thanks so much Rachel. It gives everyone a boost to read things like 'we love this museum'. That's exactly why our volunteers turn up week after week and they love to know they've helped give people a good time. Thanks also for those precious five stars. More

Having grown up in Bedford I cant believe I have never been here before. Took my husband arranging for us to bring our own daughter here for me to realise MK Museum was there. To say my expectations were low is an understatement. They were blown away. So much to see and do and such helpful staff and volunteers. The... More

Dawn this is a lovely review and will go down a storm with the volunteer team who always try so hard to ensure visits are memorable. You are not the first to call us a hidden gem. We just wish we weren't - which is why reviews like this, and people spreading the word amongst our friends, are so important.... More

Our yearly visit to MK Museum to start Christmas. Not only for the mulled wine but also the interactions within the museum. The craft fair is also worth exploring. Toasting bread on the kitchen fire is always a little highlight for one of our group. The tea and cake stop is our ultimate goal each trip. Diane's cakes are always... More
