Give a Day

Digitise our collections

Do you want to know what Milton Keynes Museum has in its collection?  Can you spare a day to help type up over 40,000 entry records on to excel?  

What's involved?

We have handwritten lists of the museum collection which need to be typed up so that they can be put into our collections database and be easily searched.  All that is needed is an ability to read handwriting and use the basic functions on excel

Why get involved?

Milton Keynes Museum has just built a new store and refurbished an old one and is in the process of reviewing its collection.  By having these records available on the computer it means we can easily search for all the items in the collection and the generous donors who gave them to us.
