New Tour Launch: Unnatual Histories

Join us for a unique tour of the Natural History Museum in Oxford! We'll explore how human influence and selective choice shape the narrative of natural history museums, offering an 'unnatural' perspective on their historical and ideological foundations.

Museum Tours

We offer a number of tours through the historic city centre and its museums

OUR MUSEUM TOURS

We researched and designed our museum tours in collaboration with curators at the Ashmolean, Pitt Rivers, and Natural History Museums. These tours address the unique history of each museum and their development as educational public institutions, historic and modern collection practices, the ethics of displaying controversial items, calls for repatriation of objects and institutional responses, and modern curatorial practices.

Join us for a unique tour through the Ashmolean Museum, the Oxford Museum of Natural History, and the Pitt Rivers Museum.
