Ashmolean Museum

About

The Ashmolean is the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology. 

We’re Britain’s first public museum, home to half a million years of human history and creativity, from ancient Egyptian mummies to modern art, and much more.

Since 1683 we’ve been fueling imaginations and enriching lives. Our world-class collections, teaching and research aim to share people’s stories across cultures and through time. We encourage everyone to explore the big questions about our past, present and future.

Situated at the heart of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, the Ashmolean is a place for people to come together to share stories, ideas and experiences. Free to all and open every day, we offer something for everyone, bringing inspiration to curious minds.
