Celebrate World Book Day at the Museum of Oxford, as we open up our Museum Makers space for relaxed family fun over lunchtime. Alongside your museum visit, grab a beanbag, share a book in our cozy corner or make a mask inspired by the literary characters of Oxford.

This is a free, drop-in event, aimed families with children under 12. There is no need to book, but spaces on the day will be dependent on capacity. Donations are welcome. 

Access requirements:

The Museum is accessible for wheelchair users and baby carriers. 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). Inside the Museum, Museum Makers is accessible via a platform lift and lift to the basement level. Accessible toilets are available in the Museum (close to Museum Makers) and in the Town Hall on the ground floor, before entering the Museum. Please contact the Museum team if you’d like to talk to a member of staff about your access requirements. Further access information can be found on our website:
