About The Story Museum

The Story Museum is a magical land to explore on wet days. There is a mystical wood where trees tell traditional tales over the phone and through buttons. At the enchanted library, you can create your own adventure by choosing which miniature door to open. Each one contains a different scene presented as an art installation. Little children will enjoy the little play town where they can act out favourite pictures books and nursery rhymes. Meanwhile, older children can board a 'craft' to travel though Oxford's literary history with audio visual displays.
The Wood Shed is an onsite theatre where you can catch live storytelling and folk performances.
The 2023 exhibition lets you explore inside an anthill, while listening to the voices of accomplished artists such as local favourite CBBC's Nick Cope!
