Milton Keynes Museum gears up for its annual Transport Weekend
Gleaming bodywork and customised motors will be lining up for your inspection at the return of Milton Keynes Museum’s annual Transport Weekend (September 11 & 12).
The cars taking part this Saturday and Sunday are real labours of love for their owners, who have spent significant amounts of time and money to get them looking all shiny and sensational. Lots of the motors parking up are vintage, and a few lorries will be on site too.
If you prefer to travel on two wheels, not four, there will be lots of gleaming bikes to catch the eye.
More than 130 vehicles are expected over the course of the weekend.
“The Transport Weekend is always a fabulous family event, and you don’t need to be a motoring enthusiast to be dazzled by the display,” said museum director Bill Griffiths.
“Despite Covid, we were lucky enough to be able to stage the transport event in 2020, and this year promises to be even bigger and better. All of the usual museum attractions will be open too.”
Visitors might also like to pop to the new gallery atrium which is currently housing a replica Red Bull Racing Formula One car – another reason for people to get revved up over the weekend. It ‘wheelie’ is lovely day out for all!
The Granary Tea Room will be serving refreshments, and there are three temporary exhibitions for visitors to view in the new gallery.
Standard admission applies – which will also give you FREE entry for the following 12 months; adults £12, child £8 (Under 5’s free), concessions, £10. A family ticket (admitting two adults and up to four children) is £36.
