Victorian Family Christmas

(Friday) (Sunday)

Museum’s Christmas Past is the best Christmas Present you can give 

Chestnuts roasting in a blacksmith’s forge, yuletide carols around the fire, tiny tots with their eyes all aglow?  There’s one place in MK you should go!

Yes, the season’s most magical Christmas experience returns to Milton Keynes Museum over three weekends in December – when the clock is turned back to  recapture the sparkle, fun and mystery of a true Victorian family Christmas.ous

Follow the twinkling lights through the grounds to enjoy.

From the moment you are greeted by our butler with a tray of mulled wine or squash, through to meeting Santa in the cosy glow of his toy workshop, you’ll feel the Christmas spirit in every fibre.

  • Carols by candlelight in the parlour
  • Roaring fires to enjoy your mulled wine around while the children play puff billiards
  • Christmas crafts in the old schoolroom
  • Making hot buttered toast the old-fashioned way in the farmhouse kitchen
  • HM Queen Victoria in attendance on some days
  • Freshly roasted chestnuts in the fully working blacksmith’s forge
  • Teddy bears getting ready for Christmas in their own toy workshop
  • Homemade cakes and mince pies, plus hot chocolate in the Granary café

Dates and Times of Opening 2016

And of course Santa and his elves, waiting to hear whether young visitors have been naughty or nice – and give them a special gift to take away.

This is one Christmas you won’t want to miss.
