We are a family friendly museum located in Banbury’s town centre, next to the idyllic canal side, and opposite Tooley’s historic boatyard.
The Civil War, plush manufacturing, the Victorian market town, costume from the 17th century to the present day and the Oxford Canal: these are just some of the stories illustrated in the museum’s galleries. There are also regularly changing exhibitions and activities to ensure that there is always something new to see and do.
Throughout the year and during school holidays we offer a wide variety of family friendly activities for all ages.
Plan your visit, find out what’s on, and search the Banbury Historical Society archive, which offers over 50 years of research online.
Our opening hours are, Monday-Saturday 10am - 5pm and Sundays 11am - 3pm
Banbury Museum is open Bank Holidays 10:30am – 4:30pm. We are closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day, and Easter Sunday.
