The Ashmolean is the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology. As Britain’s first public museum, they’re home to half a million years of human history and creativity, from ancient Egyptian Mummies to modern art, and much more.


The Ashmolean’s collection is incredibly rich, representing most of the world’s great civilisations, with objects dating from 8000 BC to the present day. Among its treasures are the world’s greatest collection of Raphael drawings, the most important collection of Egyptian pre-Dynastic sculpture and ceramics outside Cairo, the only great Minoan collection in Britain, outstanding Anglo-Saxon treasures, and the foremost collection of modern Chinese painting in the Western world.
