A very interesting and informative museum. Loads to see without having to walk miles and plenty of places to rest for the elderly (me). It's free entry (with optional suggested £5 donation) and they offer an audio or guided tour. We just followed the paper...More

Lots of beautiful things on show but I would have like more of a guide to go round as there was not a huge amount of context to the items.

All my favourite objects in one stunning location. Not sure if they offer a guided tour but I used the very helpful audio guide for purchase at the entrance. I honestly do not think that the Ashmolean would hold the interest of very young children...More
