Pitt Rivers Museum


    • The Pitt Rivers Museum is the University of Oxford's museum of anthropology and world archaeology. Founded in 1884 following a gift to the University from General Pitt-Rivers it retains its unique period atmosphere with dense displays of artefacts, many in the original wooden display cabinets. As a result, it has often been described as a 'Museum of Museums'. The new extension and restored entrance which provide better provisions for the public, students and staff is now complete. The entire collection of this museum is a Designated Collection of national importance.
