      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good exhibits, and a nice day out

      As a support worker of disabled clients I was shocked at the level of disabled access. With the many floors of the Ashmolean Museum, we were shocked to find that there were only 2 lifts, both with limited space and weight limits. We found we had to wait an unacceptable amount of time every time we wanted to use the lift and were disappointed to find that some staff who are able bodied were using the lifts, which restricted the use for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

      On entering the building I was approached by a member of staff who rudely told me that I needed to take my sachel off and wear it on my front as opposed to my back. She informed me that any other member of staff who I come across would tell me the same thing. As soon as she was out of sight I wore my sachel as usual and no one else commented on it through my visit. Her rudeness wasn't appropriate, or the uselessness of her comment of how to wear my bag.

      The museum itself offered some really good exhibits such as anchient Japanese, Chinese, African. Lovely paintings and gold and silver plates. You really have to go and see it for yourself to appreciate it.

      The cafe was nice, and the service was good. Prices, however, were quite high. The shop also had a lovely selection of pieces. It's definitely a place worth looking at.
