Museum of Oxford

Located in the historic Town Hall building in the city centre, the Museum of Oxford is Oxford’s ‘local history museum’, specially dedicated to the history of Oxford itself, both town and gown, and featuring some displays relating to the early growth of the university as well.

Featuring newly renovated displays, its interesting exhibits about the growth and development of Oxford, its people and its immediate environs, over time, is certainly well worth a visit when in the city centre and is a family friendly venue. Many events, talks and special exhibits take place here annually, and in the building is also a small shop as well as a café.

Find out where the first student took his lessons at the university, what saints and sinners walked here, which kings were crowned here, and parliaments debated here. Discover, too, the fascinating stories of the city’s earliest residents, medieval crafts, Civil War stories, Oxford’s famous literary connections and the growth of the city in more modern times. Travel through the city’s past with a film presentation, narrated by Time Team’s Tony Robinson.
