History of Science Museum

The oldest surviving purpose built Museum in the world invites you to experience an Oxford venue like no other.

The History of Science Museum offers you the opportunity to weave your event around one of the world’s leading collections of scientific instruments. Housed in a building 150 years old and spanning three floors each with their own character, the Museum is the perfect place for any event.

We provide bespoke private dinner experiences for up to 30 guests in our Basement Gallery (Oxford’s oldest chemistry laboratory), and the opportunity to hire the whole Museum for up to 150 guests. We are also able to accommodate meetings, filming requests and private tours.

You can see a 3D tour of the Museum here
