Welcome to Banbury Museum! We are a family friendly museum located in Banbury’s town centre, next to the idyllic canal side.

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.

These pages provide all the information you need to plan your visit, to find out what’s on, to sign up to our mailing list, to support our work through donation, and to search the Banbury Historical Society archive – offering over 50 years of research online.
