The Oxford Natural History Museum is currently under restoration. Apart from being filled to the brim with fascinating exhibits and incredible taxidermy the building itself is a neo-Gothic treasure and Grade 1 listed to boot. I went along to see how the roof repairs were going and what all the specimens were up to in the meantime.
All the skeletons were wrapped up so beautifully they looked like ghost x-rays when the light shone through them. It was quite magical.

Wicked photos Jo – how’d you get the access? Presumably the museum’s closed…
You can walk around them on your way to the Pitt Rivers.
