  • A truly interesting and inspiring museum staffed by really nice people, we had an awesome two hours, entrance price is very reasonable and gives you entry for 12 months, we will definitely return. The garden is very pleasant and surprisingly large but very well tended.
  • Lovely local museum, about the author of 'Amazing Grace', John Newton, and his friend, the poet William Cowper. It has a pretty garden too.
  • Very interesting.
  • What a wonderful little museum! Very helpful and friendly staff, and £5 for a whole year!? Amazing value!
  • Very interesting and ideal activity for our nieces & nephews when we are baby sitting!

Where to stay in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is growing quickly. The city's modern architectural features are built around the town's green spaces, and the center of town offers hotels and apartment rentals near attractions and transportation. Some attractions, such as stately homes, are located on the outskirts of the city. Consider a stay at a B&B outside the city center to be near the historical residences.
