THE HISTORY OF Milton Keynes Museum

In 1967 the decision to build Milton Keynes led to the formation of the Stacey Hill Society by local residents. 

They began collecting items representing their heritage many of which came from closed-down farms and factories due to the new development.

Over time, this collection evolved into the foundation of the Museum. With the support of Milton Keynes Development Corporation, the Collection was stored at Stacey Hill Farm in Wolverton. 

The farm held historical significance as it was once owned by Dr. John Radcliffe, a prominent physician and Member of Parliament for Buckingham, who acquired it in 1713.
