Housed in a 17th Century cottage in the centre of the beautiful village of Filkins, the Swinford Museum is one of Oxfordshire’s oldest small rural museums.

Originally set up in the 1930s, it has a fine collection of local domestic, agricultural, trade and craft tools providing a unique picture of a bygone rural community.

As well as special exhibitions, there is also a photographic collection of The Buildings of Filkins and Broughton Poggs, past and present, to compare the changes over the years.

Group visits are welcome and can be offered a guided history trail, together with a cream tea, if required.

The museum is open on the first and third Sundays in the month from May to September from 2pm-5pm. Admission is free.
