New museum plans - view 2

Oxford’s Hidden Histories will only succeed with your support. With your help, we need to raise £25,000 towards our fundraising target of £450,000 to fully transform the city’s museum.

What it will pay for

All donations, no matter how big or small, will contribute to the new Museum galleries

£10 - will help us to pack exciting, unseen objects prior to being transported to the Museum from Storage. Objects such as a Medieval Alchemist’s Skillet and WW2 Penicillin Culture Vessel. 

£50 - will give volunteers and staff the equipment to give the Eagle from the Eagle Brewery a good clean before we put it on display

£100 - will help us to preserve and relocate for display an Elizabethan Wall Painting installed into the fabric of the building in the 1970s

£500 - will pay for the Cutteslowe Wall Spikes to be mounted on top of a reconstructed wall with information and objects about how this community was divided
