  • A great place for children's parties and they hold all sorts of events too. The cafe also serves great cakes. Only issue is parking can't really be found nearby.
  • PROS: - two floors of different stories, - nice shop with possible refreshments, - friendly staff, - my favourite part was the big bed, - very fair entrance price, - great if you have kids. CONS: - not exactly a museum, I'd rather call it a story house, - in my opinion kids have to be a certain age, otherwise it's a bit pointless (especially if they don't know any of the stories mentioned - they will probably enjoy the big bed and storytelling though), - could use a bit of fixing in certain places.
  • The staff in the cafe are unbelievably rude and do not seem to understand the concept of common courtesy and being tactful towards customers. Everything is overpriced and I'm not going to pay to be insulted whilst trying to feed my child.
  • Always great to visit here. The exhibitions change regularly. Inspires me to read more and the children love the giant bed at storytime
  • It great but season pass changed from a year to 6 visits so we are going a lot less

Where to stay in Oxford

An inexpensive alternative to Oxford's pricey hotels, historical college room lodgings provide visitors with an opportunity to experience the city's old-world academic atmosphere without having to pass exams. Offering more than just comfortable beds and warm meals, centrally located college B&Bs provide visitors with a glimpse into the ancient world of Oxford academia. These rooms are mainly available during school vacations, when students clear out of their dormitories. At other times of year, explore the varied world of Oxford's elegant hotels and private guesthouses.
