You are not allowed to see the upstairs of the interior of the town hall but the downstairs housed the Oxford museum which had some good exhibits of important local people from the past. Also the Windrush exhibition when we visited.

We visited Oxford Town Hall on a Saturday afternoon, we were able to access a micro exhibition on wind rush which was pretty good, the building itself is also good to see.

Check on upcoming performances, since it has a large auditorium. Fascinating items some centuries old are on display in the halls on both floors.
