    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.

    NOTE: There is plenty of car parking space but do not park directly in front of the Museum - that is reserved for people unloading kit and Disabled car drivers. Also - take care as there are three severe Sleeping Policeman as well.
