Milton Keynes Museum Trust Limited

Milton Keynes Museum’s expansion is one of the most ambitious cultural projects for Milton Keynes as it celebrates 50 years since designation. The city’s masterplan had a vision for a museum to collect, maintain and share the area’s internationally significant heritage; it’s one of the few elements of the masterplan not to have happened yet.
The current museum’s expansion, with two new gallery spaces Ancient and Modern, is an exciting opportunity to preserve and share the area’s heritage.

Founded 1988

  • Mission statement

    The Museum is an Accredited social history museum for Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. The prime objective is to provide a full range of Museum services for the people of Milton Keynes with the museum being open throughout the year. It holds a programme of special events as well as additional activities during the half-term holidays. The museum is unique in being operated almost entirely by volunteers (220 during the last year) with no regular subsidy from outside bodies. It works with Milton Keynes Council and other heritage organisations, particularly Bletchley Park, Living Archive, the City Discovery Centre and the Cowper and Newton Museum —members of the Milton Keynes Heritage Consortium, to promote and protect the area's heritage and culture.
