Review of Tolsey Museum

Tolsey Museum
Ranked #8 of 13 things to do in Burford
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Small, but with some genuinely antique artefacts. Not very well presented, but worth the time spent trying to work out how it all fitted together.

Tools and descriptions of many Trades now almost forgotten can be found in this eclectic Museum. The ancient building where Tolls were collected, next to the old Lock up where a Fire Engine was once housed. Volunteers open The Tolsey from April to October daily (not Mondays) 2 - 5pm.

This museum is clearly a labour of love for the locals in Burford. The town has a colourful history and they have collected quite an array of artifacts, presented clearly and logically. The building is charmingly ancient and the staff is quite knowledgeable.

This teeny museum is really interesting. It's an eclectic mix of historical artefacts which tell lots of stories about local life, from witchcraft to buildings to highway men. Well worth a visit if only for 15 minutes!! Not really suitable for children but don't let that stop you!!
