Oxford's Hidden Histories - Museum of Oxford Redevelopment Project

Oxford City Council has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an ambitious project called Oxford’s Hidden Histories, to redevelop the Museum of Oxford.  

There will be new gallery spaces with flexible displays and new interpretation using digital media, a new state of the art learning space with learning resources for schools. There will also be a ‘Museum Makers’ area for researchers to work and open workshop spaces so that local community groups can get involved in creating exhibitions. There will also be a new shop and reception desk, accessible from the entrance of the Town Hall and improved facilities for the museum’s more than 100 volunteers.

Over the past year the Museum team have been working with architects, museum designers and activity plan consultants on the project. Now we want your feedback and views
