Help us make the Oxfordshire Museum more accessible

People in Oxfordshire are being asked to give their views on how Oxfordshire County Council can make the Oxfordshire Museum a more accessible place for visitors with additional needs.

The Oxfordshire Museum Service is keen to hear from residents as part of a new survey to improve accessibility and ensure everyone can enjoy the museum and its collections. It especially wants to hear from people with a disability or impairment,

Councillor Neil Fawcett, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services and Safety, said: “The Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock is a brilliant day out for the whole family and is free of charge. There’s always new and exciting exhibitions, and events throughout the year for people of all ages to enjoy.

"As well as by working closely with disabled residents and disabled people’s organisations, we hope that this survey will allow us to have a full view on how we can best improve the service we provide to ensure that we are doing everything we can to allow every family member to have a great experience.”

The survey can be accessed by visiting Oxfordshire County Council’s Let’s Talk platform or by completing a physical copy at the museum. Residents have until 29 February to have their say.

Anybody who completes the survey can enjoy a 10% discount off hot drinks in the museum café. This can be redeemed by speaking to a member of the reception team upon arrival at the museum.
