This is a free museum. There is a donation box at the entrance of the museum, marked with the words 5, which means that visitors are expected to pledge. The museum's map brochure is also marked with the words 1, which requires conscious payment. The museum is known as the second largest museum in Britain besides the British Museum and was originally purely a private collection. Later, after winning the ownership of the collection, the man named Ashmolin presented it to Oxford University. Oxford University established the first university museum in world history in 1683. Today it is the oldest public museum in Britain, and of course the most important of the four university museums in Oxford. The whole museum is a four-storey exhibition hall, with different categories of exhibition hall doors and doors. It's hard not to miss the exhibition hall without maps when visiting this museum. Fortunately, we basically have no definite goal. First, through the corridor of the statue display, we enter the Egyptian exhibition hall, where many of the ancient Egyptian collections are said to be abundant in the British Museum in London. We saw ancient sculptures, whole walls being moved back to the British Empire, and the madness of looting at that time was evident. Of course, it may be because of the plunder of those years that the precious cultural relics of today are well preserved. The mummies stored here are also said to be exquisite and good. Of course, there are many unearthed cultural relics such as pottery. In addition to Egypt, there are India, Greece and the Aegean Sea; in addition to ancient and modern art collections, there are also unearthed cultural relics and folk art. Among the collections from China, besides porcelain, bronze and other cultural relics, there are also large-scale famous paintings, and even cigarette boxes depicting the faces of Peking Opera. There is also a picture written on the wall in 1983, on which are four Chinese characters "Endeavour to Strong", among which the strong characters are "Xinjiang" without earthen characters. Such a painting and calligraphy hanging in such an exotic Museum seems a bit out of line. In addition to collections exhibited according to the age of the country, there are also classified exhibition halls, including coin collection, violin, glass and ceramics, precious metal crafts and other exhibition halls have a wealth of collection exhibits. In the coin collection exhibition hall, we can see the coins of ancient China, as well as the coins of India, Greece, Rome, Islam, Britain and the European Union and many other countries and regions. In the exhibition hall, we are the first to see Indian traditional paintings. Although they are elegant animal paintings, exaggerated brush strokes with coordinated colors still leave some impressions. Unknowingly, after visiting the Ashmolin Museum for three hours, it was just a walking tour. The collection in the museum was really rich.
It is known as the oldest museum in Europe and the first university museum in the world. The collection is very rich, including sculptures from ancient Rome and Greece, mummies from Egypt, Chinese porcelain, famous paintings from various European countries, etc. It is hard to imagine that the rich exhibits are a university museum, which must not be missed.
Oxford University's top four museums are characterized by the rich exhibits of ancient Egypt and Narnia, and the collection of ancient Greek statues is also worth seeing. Because there is no guide, in view of the lack of cultural accomplishment, we can only take a look at flowers on horseback.
The Ashmolin Museum of Art and Archaeology at Oxford University is the first public museum in Britain and the largest and richest collection of university museums in the world. In addition to the unearthed cultural relics and collections in Europe, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, Mesopotamia and other places. There are more than 30,000 paintings by classical masters such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Diller and Rembrandt. My favorite Egyptian Pavilion is to go deep into Egypt.
The magnificent museum is located on the right side of the road from the Cambridge Railway Station to the city's scenic spot, and then you can go to various schools. It is said that this is one of the earliest museums in Europe. The ancient Greek style pillars make the building look very magnificent. Various interior decoration and empty murals are placed along the stairs at the main entrance. All kinds of sculptures and paintings are painted one by one. There are many seats in the showroom. Many people can be seen sitting quietly copying paintings.
This is the oldest of the four museums at Oxford University. The Museum has a large collection of exotic treasures, including ancient sculptures, Far Eastern works of art, Greek and Roman pottery, and a large number of valuable jewelry. Apart from the two giant statues without pyramids, the quality of ancient Egyptian relics is no less than that of the British Museum. Especially the mummies on display are better preserved and beautifully made than the mummies in the British Museum. The most popular exhibitions in museums are coin collections, ancient Egyptian art, glass and ceramics exhibitions, precious metal art exhibitions and so on. The museum is free to visit.
The gallery on the top floor of the Ashmolin Museum is first-class, with many world famous works by celebrities. Opposite the Randolph Hotel in downtown Oxford, free admission and optional donations are available on several floors, from recent years until the advent of civilization, to all civilizations in the world.
