The Oxfordshire Museum

The Oxfordshire Museum

Date of Adventure: 20 Dec, 2023

Dinosaur fans – this is your bag!

The dinosaur room is the star of the show here where you will find dressing up and interactive exhibits – spend hours in there feeding the dinosaurs, solving puzzles, reading books and learning interesting dino facts! The museum itself is full of interesting galleries and exhibits, many interactive, which tell the stories of the people – and animals – who have lived in Oxfordshire in the past. Visit Woodstock library whilst you are there too, it’s on the ground floor and is small but perfectly formed with a good children’s section.

Don’t forget to stop in to see the resident megalosaurus in the Dinosaur Garden just by the café, you’ll find him hidden amidst the Jurassic plants – can you spot the fossilised footprints too?

There’s all sorts of family drop-ins, and trails for children and families over Christmas, including the 12 dinosaurs of Christmas Trail, and most of them are free – check out the list here.
