I went to the Asmolean Museum to see the "America's Cool Modernism" but also visited the permanente collection which is very good. I loved the Chinese, Japaneses and Indian art. And it's free!

The Ashmolean is an extraordinary museum with some amazing exhibits. The curator was very polite when my daughter stood behind a headless statue to add her head instead to her selfie but was careful not to touch the statue..

Visited on a recent trip. I really enjoyed their collection of Roman and Egyptian pieces. Well displayed and open layout made each piece easy to review. Also has a rooftop resturant.

No visit to Oxford is complete without spending a day in the Ashmolean. One of the oldest museums in England.

Great museum for those interested in art and archaeology. Gift shop a little overpriced however the same can be said of pretty much any tourist attraction in Britain that has one.

First ever visit to Oxford, so this was top of our list to do - not disappointed, but something missing which I can’t put my finger on to make it excellent! It’s free admission, but you have to pay for the specialist exhibition which we...More

A little bit of everything; paintings, sculpture, all sorts of artefacts from around the world and from the last three thousand years or so. All that's free and definitely worth seeing. Plus temporary exhibitions (charge) of varying interest. For me, the American Cool left me...More

Not absolutely sure of opening times - but the usual sort of times I think? Open all year - but one floor was closed when we were there. I'm sure that there is a website.
