Today sees the final post in the series of what activities students learning English at Oxford English Academy in Oxford, can take part in. Remember to read my previous posts to get the full list of top ten rated activities.
4. Oxford University Museum of Natural History: Natural history museums are wonderful places for adults and children alike, and the OUMNH is no exception. The museum holds the university’s collections of geological and zoological specimens and the dinosaurs are especially popular with visitors.
3. The University of Oxford: If you go to Oxford, it is imperative that you visit the university. The institution’s history and tradition seeps into all corners of the city and walking through its hallowed halls, is a fantastic experience. And don’t forget about Harry Potter! With so much of the movie franchise’s locations inspired by the university, you half expect to see the young wizard stepping out of a classroom.
2. Pitt Rivers Museum: Once again, this is another museum well worth a visit. This museum is linked to the OUMNH and showcases the splendid archaeological and anthropological collections of the university. Visitors are treated to three floors of cases and displays, curated to intrigue and delight. As with most museums in the UK, entrance is free, which leaves money for a pint at the pub afterwards.
1. Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology: It is no surprise that another museum is rated as the top activity to do in Oxford as the city excels at creating engaging museum experiences. The Ashmolean is a museum of ‘art and archaeology’ and is filled to the brim with interesting exhibitions. With over 3000 reviews on TripAdvisor, 2000 of them singing the virtues of and raving about the museum, this should certainly be on the top of your list of places to visit in Oxford. So many votes of excellence surely can’t be wrong!
