South Parks Road, OXFORD, OX1 3PP
The collections held at the museum (founded in 1884) are internationally acclaimed, and somewhat unusually organized. The museum contains objects from different cultures of the world and various periods, all grouped by type or purpose. Highlights include a striking 36-foot-high totem pole, a monkey-skull that boys from a headhunting tribe used to imitate adults, like a modern child might play with a toy kitchen, and a bottle that supposedly contains a witch who would be released if said bottle ever broke.
