  • A very interesting Museum, with many old instruments that had to do with the development of science, sorted according to disciplines. The most shocking, to see the Blackboard where Albert Einstein explained the theory of relativity during one of the lectures given at Oxford in 1931. It is free, although you can make a donation to enter.

  • Quite a small collection but very interesting and a definite recommendation for all of any age. Admission is free, but you there is a donation box at the front which I recommend using to keep this museum running.
  • Amazing little museum. It has some of the most inspiring scientific history hidden in a small place. The staff is very friendly and informative. They always love discussion.
  • Good educational place. Impressive collections of exhibits. You can see astronomy and astrology items, chemestry related items.
  • Disappointing. Rather staid and old-fashioned museum. Plenty of exhibits and free to enter. But displays could be more excitingly presented.
  • A rare museum that full of ancient scientific machines and tools. It shows us how our ancestor used to tell time, calculate, photograph, or even undergo surgery. What a golden age of technology and handcrafted tools.
