In 1884 General Pitt Rivers bequeathed his archaeological/anthropological collection of 18,000 artifacts to Oxford University. Today one can find his greatly expanded Museum housed with the Oxford Museum of Natural History (OMNH) near Oxford University. It is located in a neo-Gothic Cathedral packed with wooden display cases of objects from around the world through time. The objects are displayed by usage as the General's intent was to show the progression of human cultural design and evolution. Although it is primarily used as a teaching and research institution, Oxford's many museums attract over a million visitors annually.

Admission is free.
