The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford is the oldest museum in Britain, founded in 1693. The institution has grown, thanks to a new postmodern building by architect Rick Mather. The open concept design of the new galleries is perfect for the curatorial focus on the impact of trade and the legacy of intercultural exchange titled "Crossing Cultures Crossing Time".
