Easter Fun & Easter Hunt

  • 10 — 13 April 2020

Solve our Milton Keynes Museum Easter Egg hunt and win a yummy chocolate prize
The museum’s novel Easter Egg Hunt means everyone wins something – and gets to enjoy a tour of the whole site while searching for eggs they can trade in for yummy chocolate.
As usual, the Easter Egg Hunt only one of the ways Milton Keynes Museum plans to entertain visitors over the four day weekend.
The Connected Earth gallery, telling the story of human communication, is always a huge hit, while the Victorian Farmhouse is packed with things to try out and experience, from playing Puff Billiards in the parlour to taking a turn in the stocks in our courtyard.
Other highlights include the chance to discover the history of transport in the area, experience an air raid in the wartime garden, and make a brass rubbing to take home.
The museum is now in its summer opening hours which means throughout the Easter school holidays visitors are welcome from Wednesday – Friday 11am – 4.30pm
