A cabinet of curiosities, the Ashmolean Museum is one of the best places to visit in Oxford. It originally contained the travel collections of scientist and politician Elias Ashmole, but has grown to include world-class collections of archaeological specimens and fine art. When you visit Oxford you can view wonderful art - Turner, Pissarro, Titian, van Dyck, Constable and the Pre-Raphaelites.
If thats too mainstream for you, the strange and historic is also well represented. View, instead, the death mask of Oliver Cromwell and Guy Fawkes lantern. How about the original One Ring that inspired Tolkien? The collections range from the antiquities of Greece, Egypt and China to astrolabes, majolica pottery and English silver.
As one of Oxfords main attractions, it also appears in film, television and literature. The Ashmolean features in the Inspector Morse and Lewis TV series, as well as in Philip Pullmans His Dark Materials. When youre planning what to do in Oxford, do note that the Ashmolean has an excellent restaurant and shop for breaks and shopping. Its free and nearby to the renowned Bodleian Library.
