“A surprise in the Shopping Centre!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The displays change so that you don't get bored, always something new and interesting. You get in through the Quayside shopping centre, the tea rooms serve Banbury Cake yum! and lots of fresh goodies and you can watch the canal boats float past by the windows as you relax, Lovely.

“Local visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

this museum has a fair bit of local history, has regular themes going on for all ages, is wheelchair friendly, with lift, a covered glass enclosed bridge so you can stand and view the canal in both direction, has a working barge workshop, Tooleys which you can go around, it not only still repairs barges but totally refurbishes them.On days like canal day each year it is a beautiful sight to see all the barges dressed up in the theme of the year, fantastic day out.
