Oxford Museums

Oxford boasts world-class museums many run by the University, where you’ll be spoilt for choice. Soak up Oxford’s historical culture at the Ashmolean or step back in time at the Pitt Rivers Museum. Oxford Museums are generally free admission, although small donation would benefit the running of these essential institutions.
