Founded in 1683, the Ashmolean is Britain’s first public museum and home to the University of Oxford’s world-class collections of art and archaeology.
If you're visiting the museum check out the roof-top restaurant and their afternoon teas. Very good and good value to boot! Starters are also eclectic and delicious.
The "Threads of Silk and Gold: Ornamental Textiles from Meiji Japan" exhibition on until the end of January is amazing, it's incredible what they managed to do with just thread and cloth. Go see it!
No idea about the quality of the restaurant but the basement cafe has one of the nicest selections of sandwiches in central Oxford. Great for when you're tired after a trip to the mummies!
Medieval Room has a great section on the Byzantine Empire. Not a lot of artefacts, but interesting nevertheless!
On a sunny summer day, enjoy a cappuccino on the lawn - on the roof! Stretch out on a beanbag chair on the grass.
One of the oldest public museums in the World. Do not forget to see the mummies.
The entire History of Art (pretty much) under one beautiful roof!
The museum is great and the architecture of the building is incredible - if you're into that sort of thing...
Impressive pieces from around the world! And it's free...
Try the cream tea in the top floor restaurant. There's a great roof terrace too - great in the sunshine.
Something worth to see!!
Visit there regularly. Great as it's free. So much to see and find unexpected things.
Relax on the roof !
Oxford the best place to dwell in the world. The Ashmolean, awesome, museumed in & out on Sunday. Lunch at The Trout, fabulous.
The best way to time travel – the museum features items from over 8,000 years ago!
The Ancient Egypt exhibit is awesome.
This place has no business being closed on a Monday. Way out of line.
Pretty awesome here and everytime you come there is something different to look at. The audio guide is worth a look as well.
Basement cafe excellent for a cultural quick lunch
Have you seen Manet's Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus on display in Gallery 65?The Ashmolean is campaigning to save it for the public http://www.ashmolean.org/manet/
Off the beaten track for most tourists but this is well worth a visit. The art is truly fantastic and has many masters; monet, manet, van Dyck and many others. Usually very quiet also. Great cafes
Visited the Pre-raphealite exhibition, loved it. Was the last day of the exhibition and was really busy,

Ashmolean Museum'da sanat ve arkeolojiyle içiçe bir gün. ...ve restoranında eşsiz bir öğle yemeği keyfi.
