Ashmolean Museum

Recommended
Built by CR Cockerell in a very free neo-Grecian style (1845), the Ashmolean developed from the collections of John Tradescant, the gardener at Hatfield House, and his son. Nowadays, the Ashmolean is a university museum housing rich and varied collections encompassing the cultures of the world over a period ranging from ancient times to the present day.
