Become a Friend of The Oxfordshire Museum

The Friends of The Oxfordshire Museum is a registered charity set up over 20 years ago.

It was set up to support the museum to display the culture and heritage of the county.

Over those years it has raised funds to contribute to the cost of the physical development of the buildings and displays to ensure that this is a museum fit for the 21st century.

The Friends finance temporary exhibitions and family learning programs, and in addition conduct appeals for money to purchase items for the museum's collections. Friends enjoy many benefits including monthly lectures and regular outings.
