MultakaOxford is a project currently running at the Pitt Rivers Museum and the History of Science Museum in Oxford. The project brings people together as a meeting point to share experience, knowledge and skills and be a platform for cultural dialogue. The project has been running a tour guide training programme since February 2023 to facilitate individuals to develop unique tours to share their personal knowledge of cultural objects in the museum.
