Overview
More
The Oxford Museum began in 1964 with the finding of 18th and 19th century bottles and pottery shards. From these first artifacts has evolved a rare mosaic depicting Oxford’s past. As such, the museum has become a valuable part of the under-standing of the more than 325 years of Oxford history. Its exhibits are exclusively devoted to its people, their way of life, and their contribution to our country since the 1600s. We are proud of our many treasures including old photographs, clothing, antique engines, boat building tools, models, paintings, furniture, documents, war items, Indian items, pottery, china and waterman tools. Popular local artists are also featured during exhibits which strive to highlight different aspects of life on the shore. Contact for inquires and special bookings.

This museum showcases the history of Oxford. We weren't that interested so we only stayed a few minutes. It is free.

This is a charming small town museum filled with treasures from locals who love and care about their home. The curator was delightful and the displays are charming, capturing life in a small and historically significant town. Well worth a stop.

If you are interested in Oxford history at all this is a wonderful place to spend an hour or so. I have visited twice and found the staff to be very knowledgeable and eager to assist visitors.

Very informative little museum. Rich with over 300 years of history. This includes current history of the town of Oxford. What a hidden treasure

We enjoyed viewing the exhibits at the museum and learning about Oxford's history. The curator/host was very friendly and told us about the town. We were glad we made the stop.

This is worth the 15 minutes it will take you to go through this neighborhood center. History buffs or folks with a tie to the area will be most interested.

The museum nicely portrays the history of this quaint, small town. It's a homespun kind of place, but very informative. The staff person was friendly, knowledgeable and able to answer our questions.

Not much here to see a big disappointment. On the main street of ford. A sleepy town at the end of the peninsula, Quaint houses but not much else.
