Venue Description

The Museum of Oxford is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of Oxford and its people. Explore Oxford presents the city's past and present in two very different spaces. Exploring the past, visitors can have a look around a Victorian Office and see how the city has developed over the past 3000 years. Continuing into the second space, visitors can take a virtual high-speed bike ride around the city. You can look and read about a variety of different characters from Oxford's past and how industry, entertainment, work and invention have shaped the city we see today. There is even more to the Museum of Oxford than Explore Oxford though. With a host of changing exhibitions in our Gallery, a variety of events ranging from live music to comedy in The Old Museum, family activities and fun throughout the year and an accessible and extensive community programme. There are also lots of ways to get involved with the Museum through volunteering. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm
