When awarding funds for redevelopment of the site, the Heritage Lottery Fund regarded the Bus collection as ‘of national importance’. Over 40 vehicles are on display. Most are buses in the ownership of the Museum. Some are privately owned buses on long-term loan for display to the public. In addition there are various other exhibits on loan, from fire engines to bicycles, to add a period feel to the core collection. For reasons of safety, and to preserve the more fragile exhibits, visitors cannot enter all the vehicles on display, but access to a number of them is possible. There are extensive displays of photographs, tickets, uniforms and other memorabilia. Since 2004 the Museum has also been home to the Morris Motors Museum, which charts the story of how these classic British cars and commercial vehicles were produced at Cowley, in the city. Our impressive collection of vintage Morris vehicles represents those produced during William Morris's life. The link between William Morris founder of Morris Motors (who later became Lord Nuffield) and buses in Oxford can be traced to 1913 when he and a partner started the first motorbus service in the city.
