Sunday Morning Screen

Every Sunday 10.45 – 11.40

Still a good time of the week for a relaxed visit - space to draw, a chance to study, or simply to wander the galleries in peace. Also catch our Sunday Morning Screen on the Lower Gallery - Taking the Past into the Future (10.45, 45 minutes) is an andio-visual presentation featuring Sir David Attenborough, introducing many familiar – and some easily missed – treasures of the collections. This is followed by Welcome to My Museum (11.30, 10 minutes), a short film imagining a meeting between the two Victorian founders of the Pitt Rivers Museum and our neighbour, the Museum of Natural History. Find out about how and why they established these institutions and join the debate over which museum has the best exhibit…
