  • It was not clear exactly who this was targeted at on entry. The story museum looks like it would be amazing for children, features lots of interactive content including story rooms and a dress up area, and I would highly recommend it for anyone with under 12s. However, there is not really any content at all for adults. Either some additional information content dotted around the exhibitions for adults to read, or more detail as to what to expect before entering would have been appreciated.
  • fantastic place to take kids from 1 to 99. You can linger in story-book places, go through the wardrobe full of fur coats to find Narnia. dress up in the dress up room, relax on the giant bed and even meet authors of children's books. I have been there maybe 15 times with 12 year old and we spent hours of delight there each time. But also good for little ones. Well worth the entrance price.
  • If you throw yourself into the activities your child will have a great time. It's woven into the nearby Oxford buildings on the 1st and second floors but disabled lifts are available. Best to check when the events are on but failing that the staff will happily read stories and play with the children throughout the exhibits. Premises are 3 star but the staff knock it into 4.
  • This place has greatly improved since it opened. Our kids loved it. While they still have quite a bit to do it is still worth a visit now. This is a place that is well worth supporting. I liked the story teller the most or maybe the talking throne which I admit I had to have a go on myself.
  • Very nice place, I went there for conference. Good location. The decorations of the story museum are very interesting too
