Pitt Rivers ‘After Hours’
The Museum will open one evening a month, especially for those seeking a child-free encounter with the collections. At each After Hours event you will be able to take advantage of a free, themed programme (such as talks, music, or screenings) or you can simply enjoy the Museum at your own pace.
Entry and exit will be via the Museum’s South Door on Robinson Close, off South Parks Road.
