Half term starts today, but there's no need to panic!
Keep the kids happy by treating the family to a day at Milton Keynes Museum – there will be plenty of entertainment to keep little folks happy, so you can relax and enjoy yourselves along with the little 'uns!
The popular science professor will be back, capturing attentions and imaginations with a variety of weird and wonderful experiments. The shows will run throughout the day, and always prove a popular draw.
Milton Keynes Museum is proud to be a hands-on environment and positively encourages little fingers to handle the history under its roof.
So whether they want to dial up some fun in the Connected Earth gallery with its fully working telephone exchange, or would prefer to play parlour games and make good use of the pianola, youngsters will be very welcome to get involved.
And no visit is complete without a stroll along the wonderful Street of Shops.
It's getting cold outside, but one place that is always nice and snuggly is the Farmhouse Kitchen, and children can make their own hot buttered toast at the fire.
If any youngsters are missing school, a trip to the Victorian schoolroom will soon sort that out, with craft activities running there throughout the week.
Motor enthusiasts young and old will love a trip to the Hall of Transport, which currently includes a replica of a Red Bull Racing RB4 (in current livery) that raced in the 2008 Formula One season.
Standard admission prices apply – which will also give you free entry for the following 12 months when Gift Aid is given; adults £9, child £6, retired & unwaged £7.
A family ticket (admitting two adults and up to four children) is £26.
