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.
Can get quite packed with school groups, so try to visit at off-peak times!
Architecture is great and so is the Egyptian exhibit.
I like this museum.
A great compact museum that manages to cover everything and make it all interesting. Ancient history and art. All are contained in a newly designed interior which is more intimate than before.
Great range of work to be seen and love the live events
Visit the museum. It's free!!!! 😊
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 !
On a sunny summer day, enjoy a cappuccino on the lawn - on the roof! Stretch out on a beanbag chair on the grass.
Oxford the best place to dwell in the world. The Ashmolean, awesome, museumed in & out on Sunday. Lunch at The Trout, fabulous.
ليعرفونا واسلامنا وتاريخنا ويحترمونا اكثر ليس من الصحيح دعمهم بالمال ؟!! نحن تاريخ وحضارة وعقول لسنا نعيش تحت الرمال ويمتلك كل فرد منا بئر نفط !! لو الحكومات العربية بذلت جهد ٥ ٪ لحققنا افضل صورة عنا!
The best way to time travel – the museum features items from over 8,000 years ago!
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!
One of the oldest public museums in the World. Do not forget to see the mummies.
The Ancient Egypt exhibit is awesome.
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!
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.
Medieval Room has a great section on the Byzantine Empire. Not a lot of artefacts, but interesting nevertheless!
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/
Ashmolean Museum'da sanat ve arkeolojiyle içiçe bir gün. ...ve restoranında eşsiz bir öğle yemeği keyfi.
The entire History of Art (pretty much) under one beautiful roof!
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,
The museum is great and the architecture of the building is incredible - if you're into that sort of thing...
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.
