  • This museum was sort of a disappointment for me. While the concept sounds awesome, I was disappointed to end up in a place with random yet beautiful tools that used to be use in medicine and astronomy...  more »

  • My favourite Oxford museum! Fascinating collections and imaginative exhibitions. Space is a little tight (especially when the tourists are out and about) and the disabled access lift seems to be broken more often than not, but so long as you can manage the stairs this Oxford gem promises to show you more about how science USED to be done than you ever thought possible.
  • Child UNfriendly, probably a good day out for older people but not for children or any one with pushchairs. Lift for wheelchairs only- hard luck if you have a pram and the children's interactive activities are a piece of paper with pictures to find- 7 children aged between 7 months- 11 years, nine of them enjoyed it ☹️
  • Einstein’s blackboard! Wow! Great place with lots of great stories
  • Really enjoyed the array of sciencetifc equipment, and the stories behind them
  • The antibiotics exhibition was really good. Building itself was good to walk around.
