The Oxford University Museum of Natural History contains many treasures, but the building is one in its own right.
Built in 1861, the interior decoration is not purely ornamental. The men leaning against the columns on the ground floor are famous scientists, like Aristotle and Darwin. The columns on the top floor are made from various British stones and are topped by bronze leaves and branches from different plants.
