Lovely morning looking at some fascinating historic relics. Our almost 6 yr old daughter had a great time looking at things. Was great that there was a information trail booklet that she could do to enhance the visit. Unfortunately it's not really suitable for my 3 yr old boy who got bored.

I was really impressed by the set up and it is a very well kept museum. Looking forward to coming back without children so I can properly have a look

Thank Cheryl A

Really interesting museum covering many world cultures and also a great art gallery. Easy to navigate and big enough to have lots to see without being overwhelming.
Well worth a visit.

The Ashmolean has an exceptional collection and beautifully presented. The collection is of the highest quality. The layout I’d inviting and engaging and the very helpful staff could not be better.

Beautifully laid out and presented. Treasures from all over the world, many civilizations over many centuries. We were only there for an hour, having limited time in Oxford, but thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Turner, Gainsborough, Renoir, Manet, Millais and Burne-Jones all appear here with many other stunning artworks. Interspersed with sculptures, porcelain and so much more. Just along from Waterstones it's easy to get to and near to lots of bars and restaurants.
