Recommended
Designed by Georges Basevi in a monumental neo-Classical style, verging on Victorian Baroque, the famous University Museum opened its doors to the public in 1843. The treasures in the Upper Galleries include 25 Turner watercolours, a gift from John Ruskin in 1861, some of William Blake's best works and an outstanding collection of prints by Rembrandt. The Lower Galleries contain Far Eastern, Near Eastern and Classical Antiquities.
