Following the new guidance issued by the government, Modern Art Oxford will be closed from Wednesday 23 December, until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery as soon as we can.

Made with MAO – discover and design the gallery space


Are you a young artist or architect in the making? Design your own gallery with this interactive activity pack.

By making your own architectural model of the gallery, explore the architecture of the Modern Art Oxford, see what local materials have been used in the building’s design, and discover how the individual spaces have changed over time.

Think about the ways buildings affect how we move and feel in the places where we live, play and work.

This project will be featured in Responsive Space, an exhibition at the gallery showcasing hopeful and imaginative art projects created during the coronavirus pandemic. Find out more about Responsive Space here.
