Oxford Bus Museum and Morris Motors Museum


As well as over 30 buses on display, there are other numerous exhibits adding a period feel: exhibits include a historic preserved horse-drawn tram, motor buses, coaches and a wide selection of artefacts including bus stops, ticket machines, timetables, posters and staff uniforms, as well as lots of fantastic photos illustrating public transport history through the ages.. Visitors can enter several of the vehicles and there are often free vintage bus rides. 

The Oxford Bus Museum has its origins in the Oxford Bus Preservation Syndicate, established in 1967 by a group of enthusiasts who had the foresight to realise that vehicles of potential significance to future generations should be saved before they were lost for all time. Beginning with just one vehicle – which can still be seen and ridden on – the collection has grown steadily, with over 30 buses now on display.

The Museum has also been home to another exhibition – the Morris Motors Museum, telling the story of how cars and commercial vehicles were produced at Cowley in Oxford. In addition to the impressive display of vintage Morris vehicles representing the earliest to the last, you will see photographs, drawings and all kinds of memorabilia. There is also a marvellous collection of 40 vintage bicycles, including a penny farthing. Entry is included in the Oxford Bus Museum admission price.

Open Wednesdays, Sundays and most Bank Holiday Mondays throughout the year (10.30am - 4.30pm) and Saturdays in July and August. Closed 19th to 31 December 2019 inclusive.
