Daytime parking in central Oxford is limited; the city encourages use of its Park & Ride car parks on each of the main roads into the city, with frequent bus services into the centre. The Museum is unable to provide parking facilities for visiting school groups. Coaches are able to drop off and pick up in Broad Street. Using the Park & Ride is normally advisable for minibuses.
