This gallery has interesting paintings collection. The lady in the gallery was very kind and shared few stories about some paintings with us. Worth visit.

This is a very small art museum but, for me, the main strength is in the earlier paintings - even if most are by Anon or no-one you've really heard of! Then there's a small exhibition space with regularly changing collections of (mostly) drawings -...More

As an undergraduate at Christ Church from 1981-4 I rather took for granted its treasures such as the purpose built picture gallery with stone betraying a similarity to that found in Blue Boar Quad dating from 1968 and with which I suspect it is directly...More

This is a less well known gallery and entrance was £4 to see a delightful collection of pictures and artefacts bequeathed to the college. There are some important works and some excellent Italian medieval art works. Well worth the visit....Check opening hours before going!!!

The collection holds primarily Italian art from the Renaissance through 18th century, and you'll also find some surprise Russian religious icons and Dutch masterpieces interspersed. It's an unexpected little gem of a museum, well worth stopping for during a visit to Oxford

I have to admit a little disappointment. The exhibition of drawings and prints rotates so that only a selection of the (big) collection is on view at any one time. We were lucky to see some brilliant Durers but missed the Leonardo (shame). There are...More

The paintings are just few and not really famous! You have to pay just to see 10 minutes of a too small gallery!
