Family-Friendly Events

The museum holds fortnightly Family Friendly sessions, alternating fun drop-in sessions with more intensive 2-hour workshops where participants craft their own models of Museum objects and learn how they work. Workshops must be booked in advance.

All workshops and drop-in sessions are free, though occasionally a small materials donation is suggested.

Take a look at the sessions on offer (below) or download the Oxford University Museums Family Friendly Programme here.
