Oxford University Museum of Natural History

The Oxford University Museum of Natural History houses  the University's scientific collections of zoological, entomological,  palaeontological and mineral specimens, accumulated in the course of the last  three centuries.

The exhibits occupy a large Central Court with its elegant cast iron columns  supporting the great glass roof, and surrounded on four sides by Upper and Lower  Arcades. They are devoted to the history and diversity of life on Earth and the  rocks and minerals that form it. What is not on public display are huge reserve  collections that are used for research and teaching. These are organised into  four Collections, the Entomological, Geological, Mineralogical and Zoological  respectively, each one cared for by a Curator and Assistant Curator.
