Local MP Mark Lancaster has supported MK Heritage Open Days by visiting local museums.
The Milton Keynes Collection which comprises of Cowper and Newton Museum, City Discovery Centre, Bletchley Park, the Living Archive and Milton Keynes Museum, holds Heritage Open Days once a year and Mark was happy to support them.
On visits to the Cowper and Newton Museum, City Discovery Centre and Milton Keynes Museum, Mark was shown different elements of Milton Keynes' history including the site of an old Benedictine Monastery, a mass burial site from the Black Death and different items (such as the first diesel engine and the pay cart) from Wolverton Station.
Mark said "As a young city people often forget how rich in history our area has been for so long. I have been amazed not only at the treasures on display at these remarkable museums but also the quality of the exhibitions. I would like to urge people who haven't visited to go and explore these exquisite local points of interest."
