Museum of Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museum

Today we toured the Museum of Natural History and the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford. The Museum of Natural History is full of stuffed animals, fossils and huge skeletons of various exotic animals and dinosaurs! It was visited often by Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell, with the dodo providing famous inspiration. The Pitt Rivers Museum is a collection of culturally specific historic pieces, like tribal masks, musical instruments and dress. The shrunken heads are featured in the works of Philip Pullman.
