Pitt Rivers Museum

Founded in 1884, the Pitt Rivers Museum holds one of the world's finest collections of anthropology and archaeology from across the globe and throughout human history. Housed in the original Grade 1 listed Victorian building with its elaborate galleries, the collection is displayed in densely filled cases, creating a unique and magical atmosphere whilst retaining its historical integrity. The Museum is located on South Parks Road in the heart of the Colleges and University Parks areas and is situated at the rear of Oxford University Museum of Natural History. The City centre is within a 10 minute walk.

This inspiring venue offers the perfect combination of modern conference facilities within the Museum extension and the opportunity to exclusively hire the Museum to complement your event with private dining, informal drinks, canapés and guided tours. The Museum Court also provides the perfect opportunity for pre/post conference networking, interest or leisure intervals and has a main platform for speeches and small musical performances. The modern room spaces are adaptable to your needs from either a formal lecture to smaller, more exclusive meetings. Both the Museum and the rooms are available to hire in the evenings. Conferences, meetings and filming can be arranged in some of the spaces during the day.
