Milton Keynes Museum prepares to reopen to visitors next week

“A socially distanced visit will still be a delightful visit at the museum!”

After an absence of more than five months, Milton Keynes Museum is thrilled to announce that it will reopen to the public on Wednesday (September 2, 2020).

“The museum is a place for all, and having to close for so long was particularly tough for us. We were buoyed by the many messages of support we received from well wishers though. It was heartening to know that people were missing us as much as we were missing them!” said museum director Bill Griffiths.

“Now the countdown is on so that we can get back to doing what we do best – explaining the history of Milton Keynes and all that came before.”

The safety of visitors and volunteers is paramount. Numbers will be limited, and all tickets must be pre-booked. A one-way system will be in place, but the museum will still offer fun for all the family.

“People need to be able to enjoy themselves again, and that is something we can definitely help with,” Bill promised.

“While we sadly can’t offer the usual tactile experience just now, our room guides will still be able to give demonstrations and we have been working hard to deliver additional information to enhance the visitor experience.

“We can’t wait to open our doors and bring history alive again,” Bill added, “A socially distanced visit will still be a delightful visit at Milton Keynes Museum!”
