The hunt will be on at MK Museum this Easter as youngsters are invited to search for hidden eggs that will unlock the way to chocolate rewards.The museum’s novel Easter Egg Hunt means everyone wins something – and gets to enjoy a tour of the whole site while searching for eggs they can trade in for yummy chocolate.

The Connected Earth gallery, telling the story of human communication, is always a huge hit, while the Victorian farmhouse is packed with things to try out and experience, from playing puff billiards in the parlour to taking a turn in the stocks in our courtyard.

Other highlights include the chance to discover the history of transport in this area, experience an air raid in the wartime garden, and make a brass rubbing to take home.

Easter also marks the start of the museum’s summer opening hours which means from the end of March visitors are welcome from Wednesday-Sunday, 1100 to 1630 right through until the end of October.
