City of Stories at The Story Museum

8 June - 30 October


Board the Story Craft at the Story Museum in the heart of a city that has inspired generations of students and scholars, writers and artists. Your flight will transport you to stories including Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, C S Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, J R R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Powered by your imagination, our Story Craft can soar above the famous skyline, along winding streets and lazy waterways, and travel back in time, down rabbit holes and through windows into other worlds.

This is the perfect introduction to Oxford’s literary history. Collect your boarding pass now.

Staying safe
The Story Craft is cleaned between each flight.

The Story Craft has a complete exchange of fresh air every 6-10 minutes so is a well-ventilated space.

City of Stories is an audio-visual experience for ages 5 upwards. It lasts 25 minutes. There are 12 flights a day every Saturday and Sunday, daily during school holidays.

Latecomers will not be able to board once the Story Craft has departed, so please be sure to check the time on your boarding pass carefully before your visit to the museum.

In order to maintain government guidance around social distancing, we are limiting booking to a maximum of two family groups or bubbles per screening of City of Stories. Online booking is limited to 6 tickets per group. If you are a larger family group or ‘bubble’ then please contact us at boxoffice@storymuseum.org.uk.
