Milton Keynes Museum achieves TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014

Date Posted:04/06/2014

Milton Keynes MuseumTripAdvisor – the world-leading tourism site – has awarded a Certificate Excellence to Milton Keynes Museum for 2014.

The prized award is given only to attractions that consistently receive outstanding reviews from visitors. The Museum appears fifth overall in visitor ratings of things to do in Milton Keynes. Explained Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.”

Among those giving the Museum a five star rating during the recent half term was Jill B from Birmingham who wrote: “The lovely thing about this museum is the 'hands-on' exhibits. Everything that was reachable by small hands was touchable. We played with ancient toys; we toasted bread on the kitchen range & ate it; we did a brass rubbing in the chapel; it was all delightful. Then we came to the telephone room & I thought I'd never get the children away.

According to Francis T the Museum is ‘a hidden gem’. She told TripAdvisor: “ I had promised my goddaughter a day out for her birthday and worried that, in comparison to the theme parks she had visited recently this might not offer the same level of excitement. However she solemnly told me at the end of the day that this may be the best day of her life....ever!”

Museum Director Bill Griffiths commented: “We’re delighted to get this award again and hope it will encourage all those who have yet to discover us to do so soon. I am especially proud that TripAdvisor, and all those who take the time to review us there, appreciate the efforts and hard work of the volunteers, who are the lifeblood of all we do.”
