Heritage Open Days celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and details of events in the Milton Keynes area 11th-14th September will appear here in a few weeks time so please keep checking.

In the meantime you may like to visit the national site http://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/.

The Milton Keynes area has featured on the national timeline of history many times owing to its central location, connection to key transport and communication routes, innovative approach and ability to deliver many 'firsts' in the UK.

The Milton Keynes Collection
The Milton Keynes Collection is a partnership of five museums and heritageorganisations who have joined forces to: • Raise awareness of the rich history of Milton Keynes within and beyond the ‘new’ city;
• Win public and commercial support for its conservation, interpretation and development;
• Share resources and expertise in areas such as volunteering, collections handling, governance and marketing; and
• Inspire more people to get involved and help to secure this unique heritage for future generations.
• The partners are Bletchley Park, City Discovery Centre, Cowper and Newton Museum, Living Archive and Milton Keynes Museum. For further information visit;
