Visiting Us | Banbury Museum

Offering you a safe and welcoming visit

Here at Banbury Museum & Gallery, we want to make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable visiting the Museum. If you have visited us recently or not for many months you may notice some changes since your last visit.

What won’t change is that you will be offered a warm welcome from our Front of House team. They are here to help and offer any guidance or assistance you might need on your visit. If you want to contact a member of our team before your visit to ask any questions you can contact us at 236165  

In line with new government guidelines and for the safety of all our visitors, volunteers and staff; face coverings are now mandatory when visiting the museum and museum shop, unless otherwise exempt. 

We will continue to offer a reduced entry to all our galleries and will operate a booking system for all events and exhibitions. This ensures we can manage access, especially around busy times. Any tickets not sold in advance for events or exhibitions will be made available on the day. Entry to both our ticketed galleries and free Banbury Gallery is at the discretion of our Front of House team. 

We are committed to our enhanced levels of cleaning around the site to ensure the safety of all visitors. Sanitiser will still be available for your use.
