  • Nice Middle Ages Museum. Filled with local area stuff. Not as interesting as the Pitt River or Natural History Museums, but another stop in Oxford if you have the time.

  • 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.
