We have visited this museum at end of the day of Oxford day tour. This museum is free for all and lot of collection on animal fossils. Very informative and interesting. Good place for kids to learn.

We came here as a spur of the moment, and I am so glad we did. This museum is worth the 45 mins of walking through, and can take up to 3 hours if you want to take everything in.

There are models and preserved parts of the oldest to the newest animals and life on earth, thorough and interesting explanations of various scientists in Natural Science, and it is highly interactive as you can stroke and touch brown bears, foxes, dinosaur bones, and more.

I have visited this museum like a trillion times! The collection it hosts is amazing (dinosaur skeletons, animals, rocks, evolution, ...) but that is not all, wait until you see the inside of the building, it just one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen!

Tips: Don't miss the bees' room upstairs. You can also have a coffee at the museum cafe, overlooking the museum.

Lots of skeletons of prehistoric animals as well as their ancestors...

But I went to see The Dodo...and that was enough...

Loved walking through these diverse exhibits. Guides give great details such as pieces featured in the Inspector Morse TV series.
