What to do with a six and seven & a half year old, on a rainy day in Oxford? Go to the University Museum of course.
It's such a fantastic small museum, housed in beautiful, neo-Gothic building. I love the way the bones of the dinosaurs mirror the ribs of the ceiling.
Lots of the skeletons were found in the local area.
Every time I visit I spot a new detail in the stonework.
The kids loved the dinosaurs (of course)...
...that you could touch lots of the exhibits...
...but the real hit were the luminous rocks.
