The Museum of the History of Science houses an unrivalled collection of early scientific instruments in the world’s oldest surviving purpose-built museum building, the Old Ashmolean on Broad Street, Oxford.
We are an active public museum, offering a programme of public lectures, family-friendly events, gallery tours, table talks and much more, along with taught sessions for schools. As well as our permanent displays, visitors to the Museum enjoy special exhibitions highlighting areas of the collection. For those unable to visit Oxford, online versions of these exhibitions are available, along with podcasts of public lectures, stand-alone online resources and a web version of our collections database.
