Current Exhibitions

Permanent Exhibition

The permanent exhibitions include some of Abingdon’s most important and historically significant images and artefacts. These include The Monk's Map, a 16th-century map of the River Thames around Abingdon, a reconstruction of the Anglo-Saxon Abingdon Sword, and one of the last MGB roadsters to come off the production line at the MG factory. Abingdon’s broad history has been encapsulated in a contemporary and dynamic new exhibition design as part of the museum’s full refurbishment programme completed in July 2012.
