The OUMNH Shop

Do visit the OUMNH shop where the dodo survives in many forms, and dinosaurs abound in a landscape of carefully selected minerals and fossils. Local craftmanship is represented by Lesley Reeves' silver brooches, and by Sara Withers' necklaces of semi-precious stones. There are Cotswold limestone clocks, and hand-painted crepe de Chine ties. For warming drinks the enteraining Tyrrell Katz designs are to be joined any day by our own bone china dodo mugs (Oxford (2) 72961 for availability!); while for the long holiday period there are varied models waiting to be made, with the life-size osprey for the most ambitious. BBOWT and other Christmas stationery, stocking-fillers, and party packs. And—for the first time, a fund-raising CD, `Music for the OUMNH', played by the European Union Baroque Orchestra (£10). Open daily 12–5 p.m., admission free. Shop enquiries/orders (Oxford (2) 72961. Holiday closures (2) 72950.
