Santa's Vintage Bus Grotto

On Sunday 9th and Sunday 16th December Father Christmas has again agreed to visit the Oxford Bus Museum and a Bus Grotto has been prepared for him. The museum is open from 10.30 am until 4.30pm.

There is plenty for kids to do after they have seen Santa. Free vintage bus rides will be run for museum visitors at 11.30pm, 12.30 and 2.30pm. The Didcot Model Railway Society are kindly bringing one of their layouts for the children to operate. “Ernie”, our scale model Playbus with working headlights, indicators and destination board, is in our Play area together with toys (mainly model buses!) and an activity centre.

There is free parking and a café. Entry to the museum is free for under 5s, costs £3 for children between 5 and 15 years old and £5 for adults over 15. There will be a £4 charge for seeing Santa but all his visitors will receive a gift.
