Booking information

To help keep everyone safe, a timed entry system is currently in place.

Entry to the Museum is free but all visitors – including Members and Patrons – need to pre-book a timed ticket online.

Visitors to our exhibitions – including Members and Patrons – will also need to pre-book a timed exhibition ticket.

From 19 July the Ashmolean will be maintaining Covid-secure measures to prioritise the safety of our visitors and staff. We will continue to maintain a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing, and so pre-booking is still required. Visitors should book in advance to guarantee entry.

You can contact the Box Office at 01865 278 112.




Secure 24h online booking. No booking fees are currently being charged for General Admission tickets, but donations are gratefully received.

By Telephone

01865 278112 Monday–Sunday 11am–3pm (except Bank holidays). A booking fee may be charged.

Our Box Office is staffed at the above hours. Please leave an answerphone message and a member of the Box Office team will get back to you as soon as possible within our opening hours.

Alternatively, email for a response within 12 hours.

No On-Site Booking Available

Tickets for our exhibitions and events cannot currently be booked at the Museum. Tickets must be booked in advance online or by phone.
