    Directions / Parking

  • Click here to find two maps for Oaklands Museum

    You can drive all the way up Moulsham Street from Parkway but NOT the other way.

    Another way is to enter Moulsham Street after going round the Miami Roundabout (by Tesco), then along New London Road 200 yards, turn right into Moulsham Street and after 100 yards turn right again into the Museum.

    WARNING: There are three very high Sleeping Policemen to prevent "Rat Runners" - they will tear the bottom of your car unless you go steadily over them.

    There is plenty on car parking but it is not intended CARS to park directly in front of the Museum - reserved for people unloading kit and Disabled car drivers.
