Oxford University Museum of Natural History

This is a throwback post to my trip in Oxford in 2016 and photos posted go back to then.

Located on Parks Road in Oxford, England is the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, or sometimes known simply as the Oxford University Museum or OUMNH. It is a museum displaying many of the University of Oxford’s natural history specimens.

In the main court, you’ll find a parade of skeletons or also known as the skeleton parade, which is one of the Museum’s most photogenic displays. Even just a quick glance at the line-up reveals some of the great diversity of evolutionary adaptations of these large mammals.

In the middle aisle, you’ll see a Sperm Whale Jaw (Physeter macrocephalus), Iguanodon, and Tyrannosaurusrex skeletons.

On the right aisle, there were a lot of exhibits on display which you can touch and you’re encouraged to touch them.

On the left aisle, there were a row of skeletons.

Through out the museum there were a lot of other exhibits.
