The Ashmolean Museum has been telling human stories since 1683 – why not add yours? 


Britain’s first museum is home to incredibly rich and diverse collections ranging from Egyptian mummies to Pre-Raphaelite paintings to contemporary art. Guests are taken on a journey of exploration across cultures and through time, presenting and interpreting the collections in new and challenging ways.


Situated in the heart of Oxford, on the corner of Beaumont Street and St Giles, the Ashmolean is a spectacular setting for entertaining and can host a variety of events. Host an event that will leave your guests with a lasting impression and demonstrate a commitment to conserving a valuable arts and learning resource at the heart of Britain’s cultural heritage.


All money generated by hire of the Ashmolean goes towards its conservation and care and to the development of the ongoing education, events and exhibitions programme. Journalists and members of the media who wish to film the Ashmolean's exhibitions and news announcements should contact the Press Office
