From drawing superheroes to enjoying the sights and sounds of fairground organs, there's plenty going on for all the family in MK this week...
Milton Keynes Museum, Saturday and Sunday 11-4
MKMuseum will be transporting visitors to the days of fairground fun with the return of its popular Organ Festival. Organs were the soundtrack of the fairground, and visitors will be able to hear the historic organs playing.
Some of the organs have been purpose built to continue the tradition.
The musical theme continues in the museum farmhouse with a display of chiming musical boxes. And two miniature steam traction engines will add to the attractions. All the usual museum exhibitions will be open too. Standard admission prices apply
