The Thames Valley Sights

Museum of the History of Science

Updated 05/28/2014

Fodor's Review

The Ashmolean, the world's oldest public museum, was originally housed in this 1683 building, which now holds scientific and mathematical instruments, from astrolabes to quadrants. Here you'll find Lewis Carroll's camera box and the chalkboard Einstein used in a lecture on the theory of relativity. There are guided tours on Thursday (2:30 and 3:15) and Saturday (11:15 and noon).
