SOFO offers visitors engaging and immersive experiences through a changing exhibitions programme and main galleries including a recreated Great War trench, a mock up section of a Horsa Glider from D Day and Afghan Alley.
The galleries take visitors through the life of a ‘21st Century Soldier’, the ‘Blood and War’ of the frontline, Winston Churchill and the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars and the ‘Liberation of Bergen-Belsen’ by the Oxfordshire Yeomanry as well as ‘Prisoners of War, at Home and Abroad’.
For visiting children, the SOFO offers an under-fives den, Kids Art Cart, trails and quizzes as well as dress up, feely boxes and code breaking!

Please visit the website for event listings and information on how to research your soldier from the unique archive covering the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire light Infantry and the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars.

Oxfordshire Remembers Part 2: Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund SOFO’s closing exhibition on the Centenary of the Great War charts the impact of the war for Oxfordshire during 1916-1918 and the key moments for the county’s two regiments.
