The Museum is located in the peaceful surroundings of Stacey Hill Farm. Stacey Hill Farm was built early in the Victorian era as a model farm. It was located on the the outskirts of Wolverton, one of the UK's original "railway towns". Today the buildings overlook the "new city" of Milton Keynes but when they were built they were in the middle of the countryside. Our extensive displays portray the history and development of the North Buckinghamshire and South Northamptonshire area. The area has changed greatly over the years, culminating in 1960s with the creation of Milton Keynes, the UK's largest and last "new city".
Old lawn mowers for mowers young and old.
Lawnmower Day is the Old Lawnmower Club annual rally. They promote the collection, preservation and display of lawnmowers made from 1830 onwards.
Usually there is a great selection of mowers on show, ranging in age from the 1830s to some relatively modern machines from the 1980s.
The Museum now has its very own YouTube channel. We will be sharing more videos as time goes by but as a starter we have put up some clips of 'Professor Beamish' performing experiments with static electricity. Prof. B's science experiments are a regular part of our half term activities providing visitors with some great entertainment.
If you haven't seen Professor Beamish's show before just click on the graphic opposite and enjoy Don demonstrating all of his charm, wit and erudition.
MK Museum has relaunched its season ticket scheme. Season tickets offer great value permitting entry to the Museum for a year starting from the date of purchase.
Owning a season ticket helps support your community museum and makes its exciting hands on collection even more accessible to you. With one you could choose to drop in for an hour or so on a bright spring morning, have a family picnic in the grounds on a warm summer afternoon or take a change of scene on a damp autumn day to enjoy tea and cakes in our cosy tea room knowing that the Museum entry fee was already taken care of.
Season tickets are available for families (two adults and up to four children), adults and concessions at £50, £20 and £15 respectivley.
Ask about our season tickets when you next visit the Museum or just pick one up at our shop so you're ready for that 'what shall we do today?' question.
