Pitt Rivers Museum


The Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford is home to some of the most important collections of ethnography and archaeology in the world. The museum is *FREE* so why not pay a visit and discover it for yourself.

We are also open on bank holiday Mondays from 10-16.30, please check our website for Christmas and Easter opening.

Entry to the Museum is through the Oxford University Museum of Natural History on Parks Road.
