events programme

Opening hours: 10am - 5pm every day, admission free.

Café: the new Museum café is situated on the upper gallery over-looking the dinosaurs. There are child-friendly options available and families are always welcome.

Access: there is no public parking at the Museum, although disabled facilities are available to registered users. There is a lift to the upper gallery for wheelchair access. Registered guide dogs are allowed in the museum. Download floorplan.

Oxford Fashion Week: to prepare for three fabulous Oxford Fashion Week events, things will be on the move. From Thurs 6th – Tues 11th November, you may find us looking a bit untidy as we move some of our large specimens around. Please forgive us if your favourite dinosaur isn’t in its usual place – we’ll be back to normal as soon as possible.

Visiting as a group: it is essential for all groups planning to visit the Museum to make a booking. We are changing our booking process for international groups, and will not be taking any bookings until February 2015.
