Half-price entry to TNMOC for Milton Keynes families in 2017

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes and ten years since the official opening of The National Museum of Computing on Bletchley Park, any MK family can have half-price entry to the museum throughout 2017.

Any family (up to two adults and three children under 16) living in the MK postcode area and bringing proof of residency, such as a utility bill, will have a 50% reduction on the family ticket – £10 instead of £20.

Established as a new town in 1967 when the existence of the Colossus computers was still secret, Milton Keynes now has a population of more than one quarter of a million. As the 1944 home of Colossus, the town has seen has seen the incredible growth of the digital world and, since November 2007, has been home to a world-class museum that tells the story of those changes with working computers from every decade of computing.

Margaret Sale, a trustee of The National Museum of Computing, said: “We want to celebrate these joint anniversaries – in January fifty years of Milton Keynes and in November ten years of our Museum – with families in Milton Keynes. We invite every family to take advantage of the offer to see a world-class museum starting with the magnificent working rebuild of the wartime, code-breaking Colossus, a computer that heralded in our digital world.”
