UP welcomes visitors to its museum, which traces the history of Oxford University's involvement in printing and publishing from the 15th century to the present day.





The OUP museum has recently undergone a complete refurbishment, incorporating new cases, panels, and activity stations. Anyone wishing to visit the museum must book a timeslot in advance. Visits are limited to a maximum of 15-20 visitors. All visits are accompanied by a member of Archive staff. Please see our contact page for further information on how to book a visit.

The museum includes displays on OUP buildings, the 17th century Fell types, the Oxford Almanacks, and Alice in Wonderland and the Oxford English Dictionary, as well as printing equipment, a 19th century printing press and access to OUP's latest publications online.

The museum is situated at Oxford University Press in Great Clarendon Street, Oxford. It is open from 10.00am-4.00pm Monday-Friday, but is closed on English Bank Holidays and for the period between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. Admission to the museum is free. Access for wheelchair users is provided.
