Pitt Rivers Museum
South Parks Road Oxford OX1 3PP
Who wouldn’t check out a witch in a bottle or a 36 foot totem pole, given half a chance? This atmospheric place presents a precious hoard of amazing anthropological and archaeological offerings, in a subtly lit atrium. Arm yourself with a wind-up torch for added thrills and check out such cabinets as ‘treatment of dead enemies’, body arts, ancient Egyptian mummies, weapons, as well as Samurai armour, mummified crocodiles and exotic masks. There are activity trails for kids at weekends and school holidays. Access is through the University Museum of Natural History, and let your imagination run wild.
