and collecting.

The present collection preserves the material of past science. As a department
of the University of Oxford, the Museum has a role both in making this
material available for study by historians, and presenting it to the visiting
public.

Approximately 20,000 objects cover almost all aspects of the history of
science, from antiquity to the early 1900s. Particular strengths include the
collections of astrolabes, sundials and early mathematical instruments,
together with apparatus associated with chemistry, medicine, and
communications. In addition, the Museum possesses a unique reference library
for the study of the history of scientific instruments that includes
manuscripts, prints and early photographic material.
