Milton Keynes was just two years old when The Open University was created. This exhibition has been launched to coincide with Milton Keynes' 50th anniversary in 2017. It focuses on the relationship between The Open University and Milton Keynes and looks at why Walton Hall was chosen to house the university, features interviews and writings of some of the people involved in the creation of both, and investigates how Milton Keynes has been used in the teachings of The Open University over the years.
