Please touch! Get hands on with the Museum of Oxford’s handling collection and learn about the stories behind some of our favourite objects. Meet a member of the MOX team in Gallery One to have a chance to look up close, hold and even try on items from Oxford’s past.

This is a drop-in activity and there is no requirement to book. This activity is suitable for children 5 and up, but all are welcome.

There is step-free, level entry access to the Town Hall is via the entrance closest to Carfax (to the left of the main steps as you face the Town Hall).
