Milton Keynes Museum is an independent local museum in the parish of Wolverton and Greenleys in Milton Keynes, England. It is mostly run by volunteers with a small number of paid staff.

The museum is housed in a former Victorian farmstead.

It covers the history of the Milton Keynes area, including northern Buckinghamshire and southern Northamptonshire, from the year 1800 onwards. It includes the Stacey Hill Collection of rural life, consisting of agricultural, domestic, industrial, and social objects connected to the area before the 1967 foundation of Milton Keynes.

There is also a collection of many memorabilia of the nearby Wolverton railway works.

The museum's Connected Earth collection includes a variety of historic telephones and switchboards, many still in working order.

The museum also has some historic Post Office and British Telecom vehicles. The largest of these is the Road Phone, an enormous working telephone used for promotional purposes.

The museum was previously called the Stacey Hill Museum.

  • Nostalgic trip down memory lane for both kids and adults. Grandson particularly liked the sections on telephone systems throughout the years as well as the Music room where we were given an informative talk on music boxes through to vynal records. Can get hands on with the telephone equipment. Nice outside areas and cafe serving cakes and drinks.
  • What a surprise! I had no idea the museum existed. Spent 2 hours here and still didn't cover everything. Went with my 15 yr old son and my parents. We all loved it. Definitely coming back to finish off my tour and my ticket is valid for a year....So I can. I'm not saying any more....spoilers 😁
