Modern Art Oxford is now open


Modern Art Oxford is now open and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the gallery. We have extended our spring exhibition Johanna Unzueta: Tools for Life for a limited two week run for you to see when we reopen.

The gallery will close again from 24 August to get our spaces ready for our new autumn exhibition Mariana Castillo Deball: Between making and knowing something which will open on 2 October.

To ensure the wellbeing of our staff and so that all our visitors can have a safe and rewarding experience we have put additional measures in place. Watch the video or read our full measures below.

Entry by advanced online booking only

We have set up 30 minute arrival slots throughout each day. You need to book a ticket for each member of your party for an available slot. Please arrive within your allotted time slot. You are then welcome to stay as long as you like, or until the gallery closes at 4pm.

Opening hours

The gallery is now open Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 4pm. We are not open on Mondays.

One-way system

Please enter the gallery via our Pembroke St entrance and exit via St Ebbe’s Street as we have a new one-way system in place.

Face coverings

Please wear a face covering in the gallery for the safety of other visitors and staff.

Social distancing

We are limiting the number of visitors to the gallery so that you can maintain social distancing during your visit.

Hand washing

We will have additional hand-sanitising and washing stations throughout the building that you will be encouraged to use regularly.


Our lift will be open for visitors who are unable to use the stairs to the galleries and the Basement toilets. Only one person or group will be able to use it at a time. The lift will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.


Our Basement toilets will be open and cleaned regularly. Our Ground Floor toilets will remain closed for the foreseeable future.


Our shop will be open, but only accessible to visitors with a pre-booked admission ticket to the gallery. We encourage visitors not to handle merchandise that they do not intend to buy. All payments will now be done by contactless payment.


Our café will remain closed until further notice. We are working hard to put measures in place to reopen the café and will update you when we have more information.

And finally

During your visit always follow gallery staff instructions – we are here to keep you safe.
