I visited this Museum and was greatly surprised how good it was . there was lots to see and took me back to when I was a child. And you get another entry free within a year. There are volunteers there who enthusiastically tell you all about some of the relics

Being in Wolverton this museum has some great railway history. It's a bit ramshackle but that just adds to the ambience of the place. My kids love the telephone room, particularly playing with the old plug in switchboards. Me, I love the Sinclair C5's, there were 2 when I last went.

Went with a friend and was so surprised. Really enjoyed our time there. So many different things to see and good fun with the interactive sections. Paid for a ticket and now able to get in free for a year! Would highly recommend, good for all ages with a large variety of sections - go outdoors there's an air raid... More

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

Thanks Samantha, firstly for 'discovering' us, and secondly for such a lovely positive review. You're right that not everyone makes it into the garden to discover the air raid shelter, the potting shed, and a rather off privy! Thank you again and look forward to showing you the cafe next time :) More

Forget all about stuffy glass cabinet museums. This is a truly wonderful place with hands on experience. The volunteers were really knowledgable and keen to talk to enhance your enjoyment. 10 out of 10 from us and will certainly return again. Treat yourselves to a fabulous day out. Would suit all ages. A great lunch too.....

A great place to discover what it was like to live like your grandparents and how it was for their parents too. You can see how it was and taste how it was by using a toasting fork and a real live kitchen range. All aspects of home life on display, also high street shopping, farm work, transport and communications.... More

A wonderful eclectic peep into past lives of everyday people. As a retired uni lecturer I was particularly interested in the school room. How things have changed! Walking through the Victorian 'street' was a very good way to get a feel of how peoples' lives were lived on a daily basis. As an Australian I was more than impressed. Here... More

Ah Elaine, how it gives us all a boost to read a comment like 'superlative'. Thank you so much. And how interesting to get those comments from an Australian too. Given the number of Brits who made their lives in Australia, we're sure there were objects in the museum that you recognised, even if they were on a very different... More

visit the museum yearly at different events. The heritage day/beer festival is a favourite of ours in September. Always something new to see and learn about during our visits.

Wasn't sure what to expect, but took my 3-year-old son and he absolutely loved being able to interact, try objects and feel part of it rather than just looking. Definetely recommend to take children!

Many of us remember how it was to take little ones out and then spend the whole visit panicking about them touching things they weren't supposed to. At MK Museum we do believe the best way to experience history is through all five senses - not just sight! So we encourage people to touch and use the objects, and, as... More

I think one of the best things about visiting the Milton Keynes Museum is there are LOADS of things to TOUCH! Once you've paid your admission (which is valid for 12 months) you go through a door and there is a vintage jukebox which plays 7" singles from throughout the years for only 20p per track. After that you go... More
