All the great civilizations of the world are represented in the Ashmolean Museum’s collections. Visit for a whole day, or just pop in for 5 minutes.
The Ashmolean Museum’s world-class collections span the civilisations of east and west, charting the aspirations of humankind from the Neolithic era to the present day.
Among its treasures are the world's largest collection of Raphael drawings - the most important collection of pre-Dynastic Egyptian material in Europe and the only great Minoan collection in Britain.
The museum is also home to the finest Anglo-Saxon collections outside the British Museum, and the foremost collection of modern Chinese art in the Western world. You can even view the whole collection online if you’d like to plan your visit in such detail.
There’s also an exciting programme of object handling, family activities, tours, lectures and events including the famous ‘Live Fridays’.
With a delightful rooftop restaurant and a cheery café you can spend the whole day there in comfort.
