Tolsey Museum in Burford The Tolsey Museum is midway along Burford's main street. The black and white timber fronted building erected on stone pillars was once the medieval meeting point for the wealthy wool merchants who also paid their tolls or tax here.

The Tolsey now houses a collection of local artefacts depicting the social and industrial heritage of the Oxfordshire town and surrounding area. Exhibits include the town maces, charters and seals of the towns Guilds along with items related to the bygone days of stone quarrying from the local area, rope-making and brewing.

An unusual exhibit of note is an unusual doll's house built in a style which depicts the period of Jane Austen.
