Visited here during half term with two small children and found the place to be not too busy so had time and space to wonder round. The focus here is on local history and i was surprised by the quality of some of the exhibits - the Vikings and saxons hoards are well worth a visit. For children there is... More

Free to enter and with a really good collection of social history. Great photography from the air exhibit at the moment. Well worth a visit.

An interesting museum full of local artifacts and information. Well presented and easy to navigate throughout, although there are stairs and wheelchair lifts if required. Other travellers' pictures shown here provide a good taste. Pay special attention to the dinosaur garden where a unique feature from 150million years or so is presented! A lovely venue to spend a morning or... More

Very interesting for local people to see our history and what has been found from the past. We are going to take relatives there sometime. The café was very small and cramped.

We visited the museum at the end of our stay in Woodstock and it was an absolute treat; a comprehensive history of Oxfordshire from dinosaurs (including a display with automatons) to ancient coins to life in Victorian times to name just a few. This museum is worth a couple of hours of your time when visiting this beautiful area. The... More

Came to see Woodstock and there was nothing much in this little place. Heard of this museum and visited. It was really great, and we donated some money. Also went to nearby Bladon to see Churchill's resting place at st Martins church. It was worth the visit. A lovely church, quiet and peaceful.

A fantastic little museum and all the better for being free! Nice cafe, too. Interesting aspects of local life and in easily accessible form. The current (Dec 2016) exhibition by the Oxford Craft Guild should not be missed. I understand this Museum is to be expanded soon which will mean that there will be lots more to see.

This is an unexpectedly large and varied museum and exhibition place in the centre of Woodstock. There are rooms devoted to the Roman period, the Victorian Age, rural life, Woodstock history, as well as special features on soldiers and crafts. There are plenty of interactive things for children to do, as well as a small café. There weren't many visitors... More

What i would call a traditional local museum, but thoroughly modern in its displays. Covers everything including costume, industry, archaeology, wildlife, and lots more - a wide range of items that should interest all tastes. Lots for children to interact with. Lots for oldies to study and browse. An its free. And it has a coffee shop and outdoor area... More

More for children we thought. Not very well planned or displayed. The soldiers exebition was adjacent and we did not go there. Bit of a dissappoint really
