Dive In: A History of River Swimming in Oxford
8 April – 30 September 2023
This temporary exhibition at the Museum of Oxford includes photographs, artwork, maps, plans and ephemera reflecting on the vibrant history of the city’s river bathing places, from the 1600s onwards.
This is an evolving exhibition that will engage with the local community through a series of workshops in the coming months – including talks, oral history training/gathering, swimming costume design and much more – culminating in a big closing event in September.
We’re collecting stories and objects throughout the show, email email@example.com if you are interested in contributing.
Dates and opening hours
8 April to 30 September 2023, Museum of Oxford, Town Hall, St Aldates, Oxford OX1 1BX. Open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm. Admission by voluntary donation.
East Oxford Jukebox
Have fun with the jukebox where each postcard tells you a different story about the Cowley Road, its past and present. Plus a video highlighting stories of immigration to Florence Park. Subject to availability – the jukebox is located in Museum Makers, our workshop and events space, and therefore access to this display may be restricted during events.
Our digital exhibitions feature fantastic local stories. Go to our Digital Exhibitions website, or click on the images below to view our featured exhibitions.
