Summer fun for all at the Oxfordshire Museum

Residents of all ages can enjoy a range of events and exhibitions coming to Oxfordshire County Council’s Oxfordshire Museum over the summer.

As well as fun activities for younger visitors, there are also permanent galleries to explore and a temporary exhibition, Juxtaposition, offering a new perspective for those interested in history and creative arts. 

Visitors can also unwind during the long summer days in the peaceful garden and indulge themselves with homemade treats at the museum café.

Councillor Jenny Hannaby, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Consumer Services, said: “There is a huge array of fun activities at our Oxfordshire Museum this summer, including dedicated children’s activities. Whatever your interests are, there is something for you! What’s more, the museum is free entry to all, so a great, low-cost day out for everyone.”

Children's activities at The Oxfordshire Museum

 There are free activities for younger visitors throughout the summer break as well as a new I-Spy Trail and a Crazy Trail for those who like more of a challenge.

 Activities are free of charge thanks to the support of the Friends of the Oxfordshire Museum.
