Bringing History to the Public

Banbury Museum

Banbury’s modern canal-side museum offers exhibitions and events for the whole family. Hands on displays tell of the town’s origin and history. The Civil War, plush manufacturing, the Victorian market town, costume from the 17th century to the present day, Tooley’s Boatyard and the Oxford Canal, are just some of the stories illustrated in the museum. There are also regularly changing exhibitions and activities to ensure that there is always something new to see and do.

The brand new PYE Gallery offers a programme of special exhibitions throughout the year, please visit our website
