  • This place is a little gem, glad to see it's working out. Excellent programme for children, occasionally something for adults too (wish they did more of that)  more »
  • This was fun and while it is a work in progress, it's still well worth going to. I enjoyed it as an adult, especially because of displays for Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, Art Spiegelman's Maus...  more »
  • Amazing place to spend a quality time with you children I would say from any age but from age 2 they will enjoy more ;) the staff is amazing ! Every single one of them are delightful. We went to a Chinese new year celebration activities. And we spend really good time making lanterns dancing with dragon and just listening to a story. Thank you for being in Oxford hart. I love all the activities they offer but the place it self needs a bit renovating . Buggy place outside doesn't look very safe but thankfully I never had any problems. Otherwise 5stars !
  • Mixed feelings - it's a reasonable size and a lot of good ideas have gone in to it, but a lot of it feels a bit tatty and somehow unfinished. We went with young children who enjoyed looking around but weren't really enthralled by anything in particular, but I can see that older children would probably appreciate it more. Not overly expensive, and the additional activities can be good. Cafe is very is pleasant.
  • Sweet little gem in the heart of Oxford. The exhibition are quite nice. It's a little on the expensive side and is smaller than I expected. The museum is split into three floors and the stairs are a little steep. I think there was a lift but I was with a large group and the smaller children found the stairs quite tricky. Despite the price it is a trip out.
  • We went after seeing Chinese New Year celebrations being advertised. I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. There was lots to see and do and the exhibits were hands on and informative. I liked it here but it did feel a little incomplete in places. My 4 year old wasn't that interested in a lot of it, though he liked the books and he loved the giant bed, it was better suited to my 6 year old who asked lots of questions and enjoyed finding the clues to build the word as we went round. We will probably visit again and would recommend others to visit.
  • Brilliant place to visit with children. We went with two under 5s and they loved it - especially the giant bed for bedtime stories. Once you've paid you can leave and go back in again later in the day which could be handy if you want to go elsewhere for lunch. We had lunch there and it was lovely and homemade.
