    Micro-Museum in the Gallery Opening

    • Date: 6th October 2018
    • Location: Gallery, Museum of Oxford
    • Time: 10:00 - 17:00
    • Cost: FREE

    Families and adults of all ages are invited to join us as we launch our Micro-Museum of Oxford in the Gallery. 

    In our celebration of Oxford though the ages, you will be able to see demonstrations of Anglo-Saxon craft, watch hand to hand combat, and handle historical objects and replicas. We will also have a live musical performance from the Oxford Waits, named after a real-life band of city musicians who flourished in the city during the time of the Civil War.

    Children will also be able to enjoy face-painting, dressing up, and the opportunity to create their own medieval suit of armour or costume from any period of Oxford’s history!

    This is a great opportunity to find out more about Oxford’s Hidden Histories project and also to see the Museum’s objects whilst building work takes place on our new Heritage Lottery Funded project to transform the Museum of Oxford.
