The Pitt Rivers Museum was founded in 1884 when General Pitt-Rivers gave his personal collection of over 26,000 objects to the University of Oxford. Today the Museum is famous for its period atmosphere and outstanding collections of nearly 700,000 artefacts from all around the world and across time.
