Milton Keynes Museum

Milton Keynes Museum was founded in 1973 when a group of local people began to collect items found in farms and factories that were being closed down to make way for the development of Milton Keynes, the UK’s last ‘new city’.

Milton Keynes Development Corporation allowed the enthusiasts to house the items in Stacey Hill Farm, Wolverton. Since then, with the aid of donations and the continued interest of a huge number of volunteers, it has grown and grown and now covers several large converted buildings on its site. Recently, it has secured a £7.3m grant to build two major new galleries.

I will not list all the exhibits it covers, other to say that we spent a lot of time in the telephone exchanges, ‘gramophone’ room, old classroom and transport shed. Have a look at the images and you’ll see what I mean.

The food in the café was excellent, and I unreservedly recommend a visit. Check its website for opening times.
