Important information to share with your coach driver

Before your visit to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, please read this information and share it with your coach driver:

Please do not stop on Parks Road for school drop-offs and pick-ups.

Due to extensive construction work taking place on Parks Road (the road on which the Museum is located) you must not stop, drop off or pick up your school party on this road. The increase in large construction vehicles outside of the Museum, along with the road works and alterations to the cycle lane, makes it very dangerous for coaches to stop on Parks Road.

Please use Keble Road for school drop-offs and pick-ups.

We have identified Keble Road as the safest place for coaches to drop off and pick up school parties. This is just to stop for a brief amount of time. It is best to approach Keble Road from North Oxford, travelling through Summertown and the Banbury Road. After dropping off/picking up your school party, you can exit Keble Road by making a loop round to the left, turning down Blackhall Road then Museum Road. Please see the map below for the route to take. The map also shows the walking route for school parties, including where to cross at the pedestrian crossing to reach the Museum.
