It's free admission. If you like archeology and artifacts, definitely worth a visit. Depending on how passionate you are, average time spent there would be 1 - 2 hours to go thorough the exhibitions.

5 stars. The best museum in Oxford. Great if you have an interest in Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt.

A large museum with many artefacts. Top 10 areas to visit. Need to return as did not manage to see enough. Free entry although a £5 donation is suggested. There are also set exhibitions that require a ticket to be bought.

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.
