The Pitt Rivers Museum is one of Oxford’s most popular attractions, famous for its period atmosphere and outstanding collections from many cultures around the world, past and present. The entrance to the Pitt Rivers Museum is through the Oxford University Museum Natural History. The Pitt Rivers' entrance is at the far side from the main entrance, therefore, you need to walk across the ground floor to reach it. The Pitt Rivers has three floors of curious artefacts contained in glass display cabinets - including masks, magic, musical instruments and much more, with a memorable period atmosphere. Most visitors don't notice the drawers underneath many of the cabinets that can be opened to display more hidden treasures. Admission, exhibitions and events FREE.
