Inspired by the unique history of Milton Keynes, the new building, designed by renowned architects 6a in collaboration with artists Gareth Jones and Nils Norman, is an iconic feature of the city skyline. The view of the building from Campbell Park is not to be missed when you visit.
Changing exhibitions of international art will sit across five large, beautiful gallery spaces. Cutting edge contemporary art will be displayed alongside Old Masters to present a dynamic, diverse and stimulating programme.
The Sky Room offers stunning views over Campbell Park and beyond while bringing the best contemporary film, experimental concerts, thought provoking lectures and a range of comedy nights to the city centre.
For families, we have weekly art workshops – Start the Art and Saturday Studio – and lots of other exciting programmes throughout the year. Adjacent to the building is the City Club Playscape – an artist designed play area – which will be open 365 days a year for children to play, learn and enjoy.
There’s a place to meet friends, have a pre-theatre meal or refuel too – the MK Gallery Café/Bar serves mouth-watering snacks, delicious, freshly-cooked meals, a great cup of coffee and has a fully licensed bar.
MK Gallery works with partners locally, nationally and internationally to bring the best cultural activities into the region. The Gallery is part of the Arts Council’s National Portfolio and a member of the Plus Tate network.
