Hands on history – on film

Hands on history – on film

We’ve just launched a new promotional video ahead of the 2016 summer school holidays.

The video centres around a young girl who stumbles upon the museum and a wonderland of exciting objects and exhibits to explore. One of our biggest draws for visitors is that they are encouraged to touch and try out everything from Victorian parlour games to complex communication equipment.

As a registered charity relying on the hard work of volunteers, we’re looking to have our busiest summer yet and are hoping the video will capture the imagination of children and families who will shortly be breaking up from school.

The promo was put together by local creative film company Wise Guys and the talented actress Emily Corlett is part of Newport Pagnell’s Diamond Theatre School.

“We’re thrilled by the way Wise Guys have captured what we are about – hands-on history,” said Bill Griffiths, MK Museum Director. ”We hope the film will encourage many, many more ‘Emilys’ to come and see all that we have to offer for themselves.”
