Although Oxford is most famous for the University and its colleges it is worth spending some time looking around some of its museums. Entrance to the museums is free, although you can make a donation towards their running costs. The most popular museum is the Pitt Rivers museum located close to the Oxford University Parks which is a natural history museum with dinosaurs and other curiosities including the rather bizarre shrunken human heads! It is free to get in and is very child friendly, with activities arranged for young children most weekends. If you are a true culture vulture you might prefer the Ashmolean Museum. This has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment and contains artefacts collected by the University from all over the world.
