The Story Museum

The Story Museum celebrates story in all forms and explores their enduring power to teach and delight. 

Founded in 2003, The Story Museum began by taking stories and storytellers into schools and communities.

Since 2009, we have gradually been transforming a large, dilapidated building in the centre of Oxford into anunusual museum, with the help of authors, artists, teachers and other cultural organisations and volunteers of all ages. In Spring 2014, we celebrated the first phase of our development with refurbished facilities, the opening of a shop and cafe, new events and a major exhibition: 26 Characters.

Our aim is to create an international centre which will inspire present and future generations. We still have far to go in order to complete our vision and transform the rest of our building – but we’re on our way! Once complete, the Story Museum will be open six days a week all year round, offering a varied programme of exhibitions and events.
