At last an exhibition you didn't have to book in advance, where you could look without being barged out of the way.
From Swindon, it's bus ride away on the number 66 bus, and with it running half hourly during the day, and the last bus at 23.23, it couldn't be more convenient.
The Ashmolean is about 5 minutes away from the bus station, with the added benefit last Thursday of the open air market, although this will be different in some way from now on that I failed to grasp.
Here is the Ashmolean with it's Bacon/Moore banners and posters outside:
Looking around the rest of the Ashmolean afterwards, I took photos of some of my favourite Iznik pottery patterns:
From the Ashmolean, it's only a short stroll to the Pitt Rivers Museum, well worth visiting to see the marvellous collections of animals and fossils,and in the basement, the collection made by Pitt Rivers himself on his many forays.
The Pitt Rivers website gives much more information on this not to be missed experience.
