Since opening in 1999, MK Gallery in Milton Keynes has developed a reputation as one of the UK's leading public art galleries, establishing itself as a locally rooted community resource whilst also creating an artistic reputation of national and international standing.

MK Gallery is in the final stages of a major capital project to extend the current building. The development will double the current building size and create new cultural facilities in Milton Keynes. Reopening in early 2019, the gallery and its programmes will be transformed through larger exhibition spaces for historical as well as contemporary art, a multipurpose auditorium for film, music, dance and other activities, a dedicated learning and community space, excellent access facilities and a welcoming new café bar and shop.
