Oxford Museum of the History of Science - Oxford, England

Approximately 20,000 objects illustrating the history of science occupy the floors of the Old Ashmolean Building in Oxford, the oldest purpose built museum building in the world.

The famous building was constructed in 1683 to house the extraordinary collection of Elias Ashmole. In 1924 the building became dedicated specifically to the history of science. (The rest of Ashmole’s collection can be seen in the larger, nearby Ashmolean Museum.)

The museum contains a wealth of astronomical and navigational instruments from globes to astrolabes, sundials, and quadrants, as well as microscopes, telescopes, instruments of measurement, and a very beautiful orrery. The library and archive contains reference materials including manuscripts, incunabula, prints, printed ephemera and early photographic material related to the history of science. At any time, only about a fifth of the museum’s vast collections are on display.

Plus: Einstein’s original blackboard! Visit the Oxford Museum of the History of Science on Atlas Obscura…

"He was one of the few people I was truly envious of. But he didn’t know how good he was and he was plagued with insecurities. He used to say he was jealous of me because music is more accessible and it reached more people. He loathed the idea that art was appreciated by an elite group. When I heard that Jean-Michel had died, I was not surprised. He was too fragile for this world."
- Madonna on Jean-Michel Basquiat

“Sometimes in life you get yelled at. No matter your moral fiber, it can’t be avoided all the time. It happens in Marine Corps boot camp; it happens in rush-hour subway cars; it happens if your mother catches you reading Lady Chatterly’s Lover at an impressionable young age. But one place you don’t expect to get harangued, one place where the lid’s supposed to stay on the pot, is poetry.”
