If you’re visiting Oxford with your family, you are spoilt for choice for fun things to do together.
We love a visit to Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford, where every Saturday it holds a free ‘object handling’ session from 11am to 1pm for children and family.
Discover and see up close the wonderful and fascinating piece’s from the museum’s collection.
Youngsters can also borrow a backpack full of activities to do throughout the museum, available from the info point every Saturday from 10am to 4.30am.
And this weekend there is something fun for the adults too.
The museum is holding a folk weekend from Saturday 16 April to Sunday 17 April between 11am and 4.30am. Join the museum for storytelling, songs, games and music workshops!
Children can even make their own peg doll or musical instrument.
Pitt Rivers Museum is free to all and open Tuesday to Sunday (and Bank Holiday Mondays) from 10am to 4.30pm, and on Mondays from 12 noon to 4.30pm.
The entrance to the Pitt Rivers Museum is through the Oxford University Museum Natural History (OUMNH) on Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PW.
The Pitt Rivers’ entrance is at the far wall of the OUMNH. Visitors need to walk across the ground floor to reach it.
Please note that access to some evening events is via the Museum’s South Entrance in Robinson Close, off South Parks Road.
