Oxford Bus Museum
Over 40 vehicles are on display. Most are buses in the ownership of the Museum. Some are privately owned buses on long-term loan for display to the public. In addition there are various other exhibits on loan, from fire engines to bicycles, to add a period feel to the core collection.
The Ashmolean Museum
The Ashmolean is the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology, founded in 1683. Our world famous collections range from Egyptian mummies to contemporary art, telling human stories across cultures and across time.
The Ashmolean’s collections are extraordinarily diverse, representing most of the world’s great civilisations, with objects dating from 8000 BC to the present day. Among many riches we have the world’s greatest collection of Raphael drawings, the most important collection of Egyptian pre-Dynastic sculpture and ceramics outside Cairo, the only great Minoan collection in Britain, outstanding Anglo-Saxon treasures, and the foremost collection of modern Chinese painting in the Western world.
The Pitt Rivers Museum
The Pitt Rivers Museum is a great place for family days out. It is famous for it’s period atmosphere and outstanding collections from many world cultures, past and present. Due to building works only the ground floor is currently open.
Oxford University Museum of Natural History
Among its most famous features are the Oxfordshire dinosaurs, the dodo, and the swifts in the tower.
The Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock
The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum is not a Regimental Museum more a Military Museum related to the connection between the Military of Oxfordshire and the County in which they are based, hence our strap line of “Conflict and County”.
At the heart of the Museum will always be the rich histories of the two County Regiments; The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry and the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars in which Churchill served and was associated with for 64 years. Apart from the two county regiments, Oxfordshire has been and still is heavily populated by Military and has been for centuries. It currently hosts a Battalion of The Rifles (the successors to the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry) in Abingdon, a squadron of the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars in Banbury, two major RAF bases in Brize Norton and Benson together with the major logistic base and the Defence Explosives Munitions School at Bicester as well as other logistic regiments within the County.
