The Story Museum home in Oxford not previously open to the general public but it has recently opened its doors and last year they received over 600 visitors. The 3 buildings dating from Victorian times to the 20th Century, contain over 70 semi-dilapidated rooms, hundreds of keys (which they keep on a huge bunch) and some safes. The buildings were previously empty for several years, and they once formed part of the main Post Office.
The Museum have appointed an architect to design the transformations of their partial dilapidated rooms, and the museum is encouraging the public to go and take a look at on one of their free guided tours. If you like many of us are fascinated with old architecture and quirky building this could be an ideal day out for you and your family. They also have several events running throughout the Christmas period. Tour times run from 11.00 a.m – 5.00p.m (last entry 4.30), or for more information visit their website:
