Advance booking is currently recommended to guarantee entry, particularly for the Tokyo exhibition which usually sells out, but walk-up tickets for general museum admission are available on the door – you may just need to wait when the museum is busy. 

Plan your visit Book tickets

Entry to our special exhibitions is completely free for Members, but booking is essential and we strongly recommend booking your free exhibitions tickets as early as possible.

Ashmolean Membership covers exhibition entry for any named Members (and one or two guests depending on membership type) and is not transferrable. Any non-Member guests not covered by your Membership will need to purchase tickets to our special exhibitions. Pre-booking is essential.


If you have any questions for us, you can contact us by email at

If you have an email address that you would like us to use, please also send us an email at the same address, so that we can make sure you are the first to know about events and activities.

Please note with the closure of the Museum there may be a small delay in responding to your query.
