What people are saying:

For a free museum it’s definitely worth a visit with the highlights being world civilisations and history but other parts left a bit to be desired for us.Would recommend checking out the exhibits and if they interest your group then do go down!

    Very interesting for a quick visit

    It is very small, just 1 room of fantastically well presented objects. Just pop in a visit it. 30 minutes will suffice. The maps of Oxford city through the years are great.

    In temporary room currently awaiting refurbishment, not much to see

    I had hoped for some overview of the history of Oxford but there were just a few haphazard cases of artifacts. Hopefully once the refurb is done and the museum is back as it should be it will be bett...

    Small, but worth popping in

    There is a good overview here of the history of the city, and some interesting artefacts, but it is only really a couple of rooms so didn't take us all that long to get round it. We didn't speak to h...
