Adults can enjoy unlimited visits until the end of November with a one-time £6 admission ticket.

Additionally, children can enter for free when accompanied by an adult.

The museum shared its anticipation, saying, "we look forward to welcoming you".

The museum has a range of exhibitions lined up for the new year.

The 'Mammoths to Modern' exhibition will look at the archaeological evidence which shows how the town has changed over the centuries.

It will showcase documents and photos to show how things have changed through the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman era, and Saxon period.

'Axe-heads to Agatha: a history of metal-casting in Wallingford' will trace evidence of local metal-working through the centuries, from coin-making and medieval blacksmithing, to modern foundries.

It will feature a collection of photos of the working Walter Wilder iron foundry in Crowmarsh shortly before it closed in 1992.

There will also be a Wallingford Fire Station Centenary exhibition, celebrating 100 years of firefighting in the town.
