Explore world cultures at the Pitt Rivers Museum

Part of the Oxford University Museum, the Pitt Rivers Museum has a huge collection of archaeological and anthropological finds from around the world, from dance masks and body piercings to musical instruments and even shrunken heads.

Its founder, Augustus Pitt-Rivers, travelled all over the world adding pieces to his collection, and the result is a fascinating insight into countries and cultures around the globe.

Enjoy a college tour at the University of Oxford

Visit Christ Church to see where 13 of Britain's prime ministers came to study, and be sure to stop by the Bodleain Library - the second biggest library in the UK after the British Library.
