    • Visit the Museum of Oxford’s Micro-Museum in its temporary home at the back of Oxford Town Hall to discover the story of Oxford and its people. The Museum also offers an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions and events. Based in the Town Hall Gallery and Gallery Corridor, these range from exhibitions by local artists to exhibitions curated by local community groups. The Museum of Oxford is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of Oxford and its people. It is about to embark on a huge transformation project! We were successful with grant funding, made possible through money raised by National Lottery players, in March. It will contribute towards the £3.2m project to transform the Museum - titled Oxford’s Hidden Histories. The redevelopment will see the Museum, which was partially closed in 2011, triple in size and increase the number of exhibits from 286 to around 750. It will tell the often-overlooked story of Oxford, its people and its communities through exhibits, objects and oral histories. The project aims to create an award-winning museum and events space in the centre of Oxford.
