Get into gear for MK Museum's Transport Weekend

Milton Keynes Museum roars into action with the return of its annual Transport Weekend on September 14 & 15.

The Wolverton-based history hub is expecting in the region of 100 cars, vans, motorbikes and military vehicles to park up for the popular bash.

A Fowler steam engine will also be in situ at the big celebration of transport past and present, together with a scale model steam engine and other stationary engines.

Many of the cars set to feature are real labours of love for their owners, who have spent significant amounts of time (and money!) making their motors look shiny and sensational.

Clubs partaking this year include The Spartans Scooter Club MK, MK Classic Car Club, Kei Kars in the Park, Classic Cars & Carvery and the Fiat 500 Club.

All the usual museum attractions will also be open, and if you need a bite to eat, pop to the Granary Tea Room for sweet and savoury snacks.

Fancy something a little stronger? The museum will have real ales and ciders on tap.

Journey over with the family and take your weekend up a gear – the museum will be open 11am-4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Standard admission applies - which will also give you FREE entry for the following 12 months; adults £10, child £7, retired & unwaged £8.

A family ticket (admitting two adults and up to four children) is £30.
