About us

Heritage MK is a consortium of heritage organisations in Milton Keynes. Committed to working together to help the residents and visitors of Milton Keynes connect with the history of the UK’s most successful new town. Although the new town itself is only half a century old, there is a rich history of people living in the area of the city. From the Victorians to the Romans and even the Stone-Age, promoting this rich history is the work that the member organisations of Heritage MK specialise in.

Heritage MK is made up of:

  • Bletchley Park (Discover the home of the code breakers who were instrumental in winning the Second World War)
  • City Discovery Centre (Learn about Romans, Anglo-Saxons and more, or take a tour to learn about the development of the new town)
  • Cowper and Newton Museum (Visit the Georgian houses where the beloved poet William Cowper lived and where John Newton wrote Amazing Grace)
  • Living Archive MK (An organisation that collects, preserves and shares the heritage of Milton Keynes)
  • Milton Keynes Museum (Explore life in Milton Keynes throughout the ages)

We are glad that you are interested in volunteering with Heritage MK and being a part of keeping history alive and accessible in Milton Keynes. As we continue to grow and develop, both as individual organisations and as a consortium, your enthusiasm and participation will help to create an ever improving experience for volunteers in Milton Keynes' heritage sector.
