The Museum of the History of Science (MHS) occupies the old Ashmolean Museum on Broad Street, opposite Blackwell's Bookshop. The main collections of the Museum consist of scientific instruments and there is usually another temporary exhibition at any one time. The musuem had been closed until 2003, but has reopened after renovation and an extensive archaeological study.

My favourite exhibit is the blackboard used by Einstein during one of a series of lectures he gave at the University in 1931.
