The Story Museum in Oxford has a surprise around every corner. Where else would you find the Hundred Acre Wood, Narnia and Wonderland under one roof? Based in the city centre on Pembroke Street the museum offers 4 different gallery spaces including The Whispering Wood, Enchanted Library, Treasure Chamber and Small Worlds.

Younger visitors (0-5) will enjoy exploring favourite picture books and stories in Small Worlds, including Michael Rosen’s We’re Going On A Bear Hunt and Korky Paul’s Winnie The Witch. Older visitors will enjoy the Galleries where they’ll explore the history of oral storytelling in the magical Whispering Wood before heading up to the Enchanted Library, where an immersive story space is hidden behind every book shelf, including Horrid Henry’s bedroom and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.

The museum also has a packed programme of events including theatre shows, workshops and author events. Highlights include an adaptation of Astrid Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking and the ever popular LEGO Master Builders workshops.

Whether you’re 2 or 102, there’s something for everyone at this magic, most-unusual museum!
