HISTORY
The Morris Motors section opened in 2004. 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. The year 2013 was a significant one for the museum. A double centenary celebration – 100 years of motorbuses in the city of Oxford and 100 years of car manufacture in Cowley.
