Things to do at Milton Keynes Museum review

This is one of those places you don’t necessarily think will be any good, but turn out to be brilliant. It covers a massive amount of local history within distinct areas. It is also excellent value for money because tickets are valid for 12 months. 

For transport fans, there’s an entire shed dedicated to every kind of vehicle you can imagine, and some you wouldn’t expect! There are things like a Penny Farthing, a canal boat, an actual tram, a Romany caravan and a Sinclair C5. It’s a bit squished together in this area but its good fun. 

In the Farm House, you can go back to school in the Victorian schoolroom, play lots of games in the parlour and a self-playing piano. They often do science shows as well, which my boys loved. There’s an exhibition of classic toys too. Make sure you pop out into the garden to see the Anderson shelter. On top of all this, there’s also a kitchen where you can actually make some toast and do some old-school ironing in the Farm House. 

The High Street is a reconstruction of what a traditional high street used to look like. It’s got a greengrocer, pub, post office, chemist, butchers and more. It’s all full of the kind of things your parents may well have been familiar with. Our highlight was the Connected Earth exhibition. There’s a TARDIS, working telephone exchanges, morse code transmitters and some awesome phones. Who remembers the singing Chameleon phone? Well, they’ve got one and it still works.

I’ve not even mentioned the stocks, printers or the agricultural exhibition! There really is an awful lot packed into this museum.  

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
