    One of the greatest museums in the world. Exhibitions almost always fantastic. Cafe a little crowded, but rooftop restaurant amazing with views all over city.

    Good outdoor seating but with no decent views. Reasonable menu for the above average prices. Museum is superb.

    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.

    Try the cream tea in the top floor restaurant. There's a great roof terrace too - great in the sunshine.

    On a sunny summer day, enjoy a cappuccino on the lawn - on the roof! Stretch out on a beanbag chair on the grass.

    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!

    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!

    Pretty awesome here and everytime you come there is something different to look at. The audio guide is worth a look as well.

    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

    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.
