So we can keep all visitors safe, we ask in return that:

  • If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or have been asked to self-isolate, stay at home and do not visit us.
  • We advise all visitors to wear a face covering during busy periods unless exempt. Some of our team will continue to wear face coverings.
  • We advise everyone to carry out lateral flow tests prior to visiting us.
  • Use the hand sanitising stations whenever you pass them, including on entry and exit.
  • Follow instructions from staff and signage.
  • Please consider yourself and others at all times, observe social distancing where possible during your visit.
  • Avoid touching surfaces where possible to reduce the cross-contamination risk. We have several interactive, hands-on exhibits in the Museum. We will be cleaning these frequently however you can help by using the hand sanitiser, wipes and other equipment
  • We ask that you please keep calm and be kind to other visitors and to our staff and volunteers.

We are constantly reviewing how we keep you safe in the Museum and will be monitoring our guidance on a regular basis.

Current exhibition: Of Ordinary Things من الأشياء العادية

A multi-artform exhibition featuring works by members of the Iraqi Women Art & War group. Iraqi Women Art and War (IWAW) is a women’s community group based in Oxford. It gives women who have been affected by conflict an opportunity to process their experiences and tell their stories through art. The pieces in this exhibition have been created by IWAW members. They aim to capture the everyday, the lives that people try to live in the shadow of conflict, and above all how women experience war. On display until 24 September 2022.
