The city of Oxford is almost synonymous with world-class museums. Perhaps the three most significant are the Ashmolean Museum, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of the History of Science. All admissions are free.
Established in 1683, the Ashmolean Museum is not only one of the oldest museums in the UK, but one of the oldest in the world. Specializing in art and archaeology dating back four millennia, the Ashmolean experience is one of great meaning and reward. Visit the website for hours and further information here.

The collection of 4.5 million zoological, entomological, palaentological and mineral specimens at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History never fails to amaze. Highlights include the Oxfordshire dinosaurs and the dodo. Visit the website for hours and further information here.
The Museum of the History of Science can be found in the oldest-surviving purpose-built museum building. Housing three floors of some of the earliest scientific instruments, be sure to catch some of their public lectures, family-friendly events, and tours – all of which can be found here.
