Overview of how collections are displayed

Tooley's Boatyard, built at the same time as the Oxford Canal in the late 18th century is part of the new museum site. The waterways discovery gallery, a glass bridge spanning the Oxford Canal, has a "hands-on" space enabling visitors to find out about waterborne transport and the canal infrastructure including access to the historic working boatyard showing traditional and modern skills and machinery in use. There is a temporary exhibition gallery and space available for local artists, a tourist information centre, museum shop, 50-seat lecture theatre and café.
