Attraction Information

Oxford Bus Museum and Morris Museum is a great place for the family, with something for everyone to enjoy.

100 years ago, William Morris started the first bus service in the City using Daimler buses. The Museum has c40 vehicles on show, some of which you can go aboard and on the first Sunday of each month (Apr to Oct), most Bank Holidays and on special event days take a Free Bus Ride (see website).

Also, on site is the one and only Morris Motors Band Coach which the OBM Trust has restored! Ongoing restoration projects can be viewed in the Workshop.

Also 100 years ago, Morris Motors manufacturing in Oxford began and the Morris Museum is dedicated to William Morris (Lord Nuffield), the Morris Motors Car Company at Cowley and its employees. The only building to survive from the once famous Morris Motors factory at Cowley has been given a new lease of life, re-erected at the Oxford Bus Museum site to house this exhibition.

Real life photographs and information from the people who worked there and the exhibits that complement them give visitors a taste of what life was like in this exciting era. On show are vehicles such as the Bullnose Morris, Z Van, Mini, Nuffield Tractor, Minor and 1953 Oxford MO!
