Wow, what a place. Just the architecture on its own was amazing, but the museum itself was splendid. Every nook and cranny was displaying something wonderful, you could easily spend a day in here.
Children would love this place, if we lived in the area, we would be back time and time again.

Free entry, a joy to visit. Highly recommended.

This is a unique museum of cultural treasures from around the globe. These are organised according to themes or types, rather than where they are from. It is one of the highlights of a visit to Oxford. The building itself is old, but there is new wing which includes a coffee house. There is also a small shop that has some high quality gifts as well as distractions for children

As part of our recent visit to Oxford I have reviewed the restaurants and places of interest we visited. Our visit to the Pitt Rivers Museum was a delight. The fact that you can visit for free is a very good start, but what there is to see when you get inside is just awesome. The collection is overwhelming, so much to see. No way you can do it justice in one visit. If you like museums you will love Pitt Rivers. I have to take this opportunity to thank all the staff that run and keep this museum in existence, long may they remain employed. The only downside during our recent visit was that we choose the Easter weekend and the museum was much busier than we expected it would be.

I've taken both my kids here on several occasions - as a museum it has something for everyone. Having two boys the favourite exhibits are the shrunken heads and the swords, spears etc. A great place to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day.

We recently went to the Pitt Rivers Museum as part of our Morse Tour. Whilst it was only a whistle stop tour of the museum it was enough to whet our appetite for another visit. It was interesting to see a location that we remembered so well from a recent Endeavour episode.
The museum is full of fascinating exhibits and was extremely well attended on the day we visited.
