The Story Museum is a most unusual museum located in the heart of Oxford celebrating the power of stories to teach and delight.

The museum is currently undergoing a period phased of reopening in line with government guidelines in response to the Covid19 pandemic. For the latest information please visit www.storymuseum.org.uk.

When the museum reopens, visitors will encounter gallery and activity spaces which encourage adults and children alike to lose themselves in their imagination. Highlights include the Whispering Wood – a mysterious forest resounding with oral stories from around the globe – and Small Worlds – a patchwork play space featuring well-loved picture book characters. Malorie Blackman and Philip Pullman, who are patrons of the museum, will have their work featured in the Enchanted Library, an immersive gallery that invites visitors to step inside scenes from eight selected children’s stories. The magic of live storytelling will be celebrated in the museum’s 100+ seat theatre, hosting small-scale shops as well as puppetry, author and illustrator talks and film screenings.

The shop and café reopened in February 2020.
