    The Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock is an attractive contrast to the local of dominant Blenheim Palace. While the Palace impresses with high prices and crowded halls and wealth, this museum with its collection of discreet and put together with care and love for the own region and history offers insight into the history of this landscape. For children were offered in various fields "Voyages of discovery" where the odors can be identified by forest and farm or you can also discover archaeological finds. A very charming Museum where it not difficult one after visiting a voluntary donation to support to give.

  • We hadn't expected it to be so good. We really should have allowed more than a half hour. Good variety of displays and themes,. Good for Adults and children with activity areas for children. Plenty for Adults too. Such a surprisingly good museum for a small town like Woodstock. And it's Free. So we made a donation especially as it was so good.
  • Small but excellent exhibition on the Wychwood Forest. Beautiful and shady garden to sit in. Lovely lunch.
  • A small gem. The Anglo Saxon gallery is an excellent example of how to present the subject.
  • Fantastic little museum in the heart of Woodstock, with a beautiful little garden where you can just sit and relax, also got a good range of activities for children and a nice café
  • Lots of interesting stuff here
