First time visitor with children.
Staff welcoming and informative.
Exhibits brilliant and so interesting. My children were engaged from the moment they walked in. We will be returning as we ran out of time

Took 4 and 9 year old - both enjoyed it, some hands on, plus trails and sheets for the children. Lovely building, good disabled access.
It was very crowded - wet day in the school holiday so to be expected.

We had visit Oxford city as a day trip from London and We had generally a lovely time. Visiting The Museum of Natural history was one of our best decisions that we made.We liked a lot the stuffed animals and of course the skeleton of a T-REX dinosaur. Has a lot of great and interesting stuff to see. The entrance is for free but you can donate if You wish.
