It's the most fantastic collection of stuff I've ever seen, skip the Natural History museum and spend all your time here! Only problem was the constant noise of screaming children....

Amazing museum, full of treasures. You can find mummies, Eskimo's canoes and clothing, Samurai swords and a never-ending amount of amazing artefacts!

Visited this free Mueum (located in the back of the Natural History Museum) out of the blue and was totally amazed at the wealth of artefacts there. Certainly a place to return to time and time again to really study in more depth. We only had a short amount of time available but not sure I could do too long as my brain wouldn't be capable of taking it all in! There's low lightling inside to protect the precious historical things it contains but this didn't spoil our viewing.

2 hours is not enough for me. The front hall is pack with skeleton of the old time animal. The back hall is even wow, there are pack with stuff from around the world, categorized by type of 'things'. There is a guided tour, but I miss the it.

To say Pitt-Rivers was a pack rat would be a understatement...he is in league with Sir John Soane...

You want to see weapons, costumes, armaments...this is your kind of place...rows and rows of artifacts...even floors needed...

I enjoyed a special exhibit of Syrians with their lost futures...
