    Complementary to a visit to the Ashmolean Museum, located a few hundred meters away, the Science Museum is installed in a very nice house (the 17th century) that has kept its original (staircase, stained glass, woodwork) decoration. We can admire a remarkable collection of clocks, astrolabes, Globes and books on this theme, in a cabinet of curiosities atmosphere. Very educational information for those who wants only to skim the subject while having a good overview.
