Meet Me Programme for Older Adults


Meet Me is a social group for older people, that enables free, behind-the-scenes access to the Oxford University Gardens, Libraries and Museums sites and their collections. These include:

  • Botanic Gardens and Harcourt Arboretum
  • Bodleian Library
  • Ashmolean Museum 
  • History of Science Museum 
  • Museum of Natural History
  • Pitt Rivers Museum 

These events take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, 2 - 4pm.


Sessions usually last around 2 hours and are free, but booking is essential as spaces are limited.


Whether you are visiting for the first time or a regular participant, and you can be sure of a warm welcome.


See below the list of sessions we have to offer coming up. These sessions have become extremely popular, so to allow as many people to enjoy theses sessions as possible, we are limiting bookings to three of the six sessions per person, with the option to be added to the waiting list for any others. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
