    This is small but very interesting museum giving another take on Oxford life apart from the University. Take time to read the notes on exhibits and you will find very worthwhile All credit to the City...  more »

  • Small with a wealth of information and interesting artifacts. Will be expanding soon.
  • I have been going to this museum since I was a kid and it's still as interesting now as it was now, don't take any notice of some of these reviews saying 'oxford could do better' it's not the size of the museum it's the wealth of information they have to offer and this LITTLE museum packs a lot into a tiny place! well worth visiting
  • Strange place; I could only find 2 rooms that made up the museum - did I miss some more perhaps? Oxford deserves a better museum. Very friendly staff though.
  • Quite disappointed with my recent trip to the Museum of Oxford. It's incredibly small, consisting of just two rooms which are about the size of an average bedroom! There is a random array of items from Oxford's past on display, but not enough information to go with them. With so many visitors to Oxford, it deserves a better museum than this. OK for 15 minutes, but nothing more.
  • This is a tiny and clearly underfunded museum, which fails to give any impression of what Oxford was like in the past. Surely all these rich colleges could put some space and money aside for a better show?
