About the Story Museum

The Story Museum is a most unusual museum in the heart of Oxford. Through immersive exhibitions and gallery spaces, events and outreach work, they celebrates stories in all forms and explore their enduring power to teach and delight.

Stories are a brilliant way of bringing people together, sharing experiences and nurturing skills. The Story Museum works with selected schools and community partners to bring about positive change for groups and individuals.

Through imaginative exhibitions and an exciting programme of performances, events, workshops, clubs and skills-building courses, they engages people of all ages in great stories. Their activities are interactive, multi-sensory and designed to encourage parents, carers and children to spend time together enjoying stories in many different ways.

Their schools’ workshops are based on many years of experience in engaging children with learning and literacy. Half and full-day workshops are led by teaching professionals, delivering curriculum-based and enriching activities that immerse participants in language, stories and ideas.

Each year on the first Saturday of July, The Story Museum coordinate’s a city-wide festival celebrating Alice in Wonderland. This family festival involves organisations across the city from museums and galleries to shops and community groups, all putting together a programme of events and activities, most of which are free.
