What's on



Galleries closed for redevelopment – café and shop open as usual

We have started development work to re-configure the ground floor of the museum and introduce The PYE Gallery.

There is no access through the museum galleries during the development and this includes our Waterways Gallery – the bridge across the canal to Spiceball Park Road.

Our museum shop and Café Red remain open as usual. Please use the canal towpath to access Café Red. Exit Castle Quay to the right of the museum and cross the lift bridge.

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.

Plan your visit, find out what’s on, and search the Banbury Historical Society archive, which offers over 50 years of research online.
