Oxford Bus Museum

Click Photo for Slideshow

The Museum has on display more than a century of Oxfordshire public transport and Morris Motors vehicles. There over 30 vehicles on display in the Bus Museum, most of which are in the ownership of the Museum. However, some are privately owned and are on long-term loan for display to the public.

In addition there are various other exhibits on loan, such as bicycles, to add a period feel to the core collection. For reasons of safety, and to preserve the more fragile exhibits, visitors cannot enter all the vehicles on display but access to a number of them is possible.

There are extensive displays of photographs, tickets, uniforms and other memorabilia. As a special attraction, the Museum offers a free bus ride from the collection on the first and third Sunday of the month from April to October inclusive.

The Morris Motors Museum tells the story of how cars and commercial vehicles were produced at Cowley. There are exhibitions of photographs, drawings and all kinds of memorabilia, together with an impressive display of vintage Morris vehicles, representing the earliest to the last.

Entry is included in the Oxford Bus Museum admission price, two museums for the price of one!
