Using a capillarity method and a split type superconducting magnet, the surface tension of liquid oxygen has been measured in various magnetic fields up to 5 T at 65.3 K and 77.1 K. Experimental data are compared with the numerical calculations obtained on the basis of the theory of surface tension. It is found that the dependence of surface tension on magnetic field is so small that it can not be the main cause of the shape deformation of the meniscus.
