All reviews rooftop restaurant alfred jewel egyptian section ancient egypt top floor special exhibition free entry few hours on display couple of hours musical instruments great collection rainy day beautiful building visiting oxford exhibits galleries
An amazing eclectic mix of collections. Would recommend getting there at opening time before coaches start to arrive. Cannot praise highly enough the guide who took us on a whistle stop of the galleries.
This is the kind of museum to return to again and again. The collections are of superb quality and there are always first rate temporary exhibits. It is accessible to wheelchairs and the building itself is interesting. We go there on many occasions

Just noticed your question; have you travelled to Oxford yet? If not, the Randolph Hotel opposite the museum would be the obvious place to stay and central to the rest of the city and university areas (which overlap). The hotel has some history and featured in the film 'Shadowlands.'
