The Oxford Bus Museum is dedicated to telling the story of bus and coach travel around Oxfordshire over the last 100 years. Our exhibits include many historic preserved buses, coaches and horse-drawn vehicles, a wide range of artefacts (bus stops, ticket machines, timetables, posters, staff uniforms) and lots of fantastic photos illustrating our diverse public transport history.
Since 2004 we’ve also been home to the Morris Motors Exhibition, which charts the story of how these classic British cars and commercial vehicles were produced at Cowley, in the city. Our impressive collection of vintage Morris vehicles represents those produced during Lord Nuffi eld’s life.
The link between William Morris (founder of Morris Motors) and buses in Oxford can be traced back to December 1913, when he started the fi rst public motorbus service in the city in partnership with Frank Gray. 2013 will therefore be a very signifi cant year for us. A double centenary celebration - 100 years of motorbuses in Oxford and of Morris Motors.
This year we also add a collection of vintage bicycles to our museum – it just wouldn’t be Oxford without the bikes!
