At the Oxford Bus Museum we're dedicated to telling the story of bus and coach travel around Oxfordshire over the last 130 years. Our exhibits include many historic preserved buses, coaches, horse-drawn vehicles, a wide selection of artefacts (bus stops, ticket machines, timetables, posters, staff uniforms) and lots of fantastic photos illustrating our diverse public transport history. Since 2004 we've also been home to the Morris Motors Museum, which charts the story of how these classic British cars and commercial vehicles were produced at Cowley, in the city. Our impressive collection of vintage Morris vehicles represents those produced during William Morris's life. We now have a unique collection of over 40 vintage bicycles, including a Penny Farthing.
There are a number of transport museums dotted across UK and some of them feature the odd bus or two. But at the Oxford Bus Museum, they concentrate on what they know best Buses! I've never seen so many buses all under, not just one roof, but two. The love, care and attention that all of these buses gets is astonishing, let alone clear to see. I couldn't get over how all of the staff that you see at this attraction are volunteers and all love donating their time to an attraction they obviously care a lot about. The cafe inside the Oxford Bus Museum gets used by all of the team at the museum which really makes you feel as though your part of it all. I really enjoyed every minute of my visit too this attraction and I don't doubt for one minute that you will too.
