The museum is home to thousands of items ranging from antique quilts to farm tools. Displays on the main floor are a Victorian parlor, a bedroom and music section containing a square grand piano. On the lower level are tools from the old Tunstead Tin shop, a turn of the century kitchen, and numerous hand tools from local homes and farms.

The history of northeast Oakland County comes alive in showcased photographs and other local mementos of the past. Extensive files of historic photos and newspaper clipping are available to complete the picture of how this area gave birth to the thriving communities of today.

Graduates of Oxford High School can view composite pictures of classes from the 1890's through current years. The Museum library contains many family histories, local cemetery records, and Oakland County atlases. Researchers are welcome and copying facilities are available, by appointment.

Two wonderful murals entitled "Views of Oxford" fill one wall of the museum. These 11 foot by 7 foot oil paintings were done in 1938 by Barbara Willson Benetti, a local depression-era muralist.
