History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
On display are 19th-century farm tools, historic photographs, an Oxfordshire wagon, a pennyfarthing bicycle and other artefacts depicting the heritage of the ancient glove-making market town of Charlbury.
The museum is set in a pretty period cottage of Cotswold stone. In five rooms of exhibits, you can learn about the heritage of the Charlbury area. See old inn signs, tools used by a local watchmaker, farming equipment, even a blacksmith's forge. There is a large archive of old photos and genealogical records which will prove invaluable if you are interested in tracing your family tree.
The museum has a regular programme of special exhibits. Recent exhibits include a look back at Charlbury in World War One, and the development of the local school, now 200 years old.
Most photos are available for licensing, please contact Britain Express image library.
