A fantastic museum that you could visit over and over again. We visited the Raphael exhibit and then spend some time in the permanent collections. Would love to go back.

Excellent place to visit with family, friends... I took my students. It's such a treat and what's more, is the fact that it's free! You can not get better than that in Oxford!

The Boss & I happily share a great love of Museums. So as you can guess. This one was on both of our bucket lists. Now this is not the British Museum. But it right up there in the same league. (I myself like it...More

Visited this museum whilst Raphael The Drawings exhibition was taking place, a bonus definitely but an amazing museum regardless, a great way to spend several hours if visiting Oxford. Can also recommend the Rooftop Restaurant, we had lunch and it was delicious.

Lucky enough to have a very special dinner at the museum as part of a business course. Fascinating venue, lots to see and impressive building. Dinner was great too.

We arrived as the museum opened at 10am on a weekday. There were very few visitors. We went straight to the top floor and slowly worked our way down through various galleries of British and European Art. It was a pleasure to be able to...More

Not absolutely sure of opening times - but the usual sort of times I think? Open all year - but one floor was closed when we were there. I'm sure that there is a website.

Just noticed your question; have you travelled to Oxford yet? If not, the Randolph Hotel opposite the museum would be the obvious place to stay and central to the rest of the city and university areas (which overlap). The... More
