Milton Keynes Museum is reopening on Wednesday May 19, promising new attractions.

Indoor entertainment will be allowed across the UK from May 17 as part of the Government's next phase, of its roadmap out of lockdown.

Meaning many Milton Keynes attractions will reopen to the public for the first time in 2021, in under two weeks.

Milton Keynes Museum reopens on May 19

"As with all businesses affected by the pandemic, the last year has been incredibly tough for the museum, but it makes news of our reopening all the more exciting,” said MK Museum director Bill Griffiths, “We have a wonderful supportive community and can't wait to welcome you back again – and we look forward to seeing lots of new faces too."

New attractions set to be rolled out on May 17 include a new toy exhibit, a spokesperson for the museum, promises it will '[explore the story of childhood'.

Other features include looks at what life was like for servants in massive country manors and further information on the history of the farm itself. Space at the museum will be dedicated to highlighting information on the grounds the museum sits on, a former Victorian farmstead.

“We have been working really hard to deliver the new attractions and can't wait to share the new exhibits with everyone, Bill said, “During the past year or so, we have all found ourselves living through a real 'moment' in global history, and later in the year we will be sharing MK residents' recollections of this most extraordinary of times with a special exhibition.

"But first, we look forward to opening our doors and doing what we do best; giving all ages a fantastic day out!”
