The History of Science Museum holds a large collection of scientific instruments ranging from Middle Ages to the 19th century.
The museum building is also known as the Old Ashmolean Building (not to be confused with the Ashmolean Museum). It was built in 1683, and it is the world’s oldest surviving purpose-built museum.
The museum is open to the general public, for free, every afternoon except Mondays.
