The Story Museum in Oxford celebrates story in all forms and explores their enduring power to teach and delight.

Despite Oxford’s international status as a centre of learning excellence, Oxford and Oxfordshire are polarised by inequality in educational achievement and half the children leaving the primary schools serving the ring road estates are functionally illiterate.

The Story Museum’s mission is to promote literacy and creativity by enabling children, young people and their families – particularly those from disadvantaged and word-poor households – to explore and enjoy stories in all forms. Their interactive and immersive approach to storytelling offers an accessible and enjoyable way for families to spend time together in a stimulating and learning environment.

The Foundation is funding 225 ‘Golden Tickets’ which provide free entry to The Story Museum, encouraging children and their families to visit and be inspired to read.
