The Museum displays archaeological and ethnographic objects from all parts of the world. The General's founding gift contained more than 18,000 objects but there are now over half a million. Many were donated by early anthropologists and explorers. The extensive photographic and sound archives contain early records of great importance. Today the Museum is an active teaching department of the University of Oxford. It also continues to collect through donations, bequests, special purchases and through its students, in the course of their fieldwork.

The Pitt Rivers is a family-friendly Museum. We programme frequent events for families of different ages. We also have a selection of trails and crafts available to download and print, or just pick up from the Museum front desk.
