Pitt Rivers Museum Oxford- a truly amazing place sharing the same (beautiful) building as the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. I've visited both many times and will happily go again many more. Both museums are well worth visiting at least once in a lifetime...

Mechanical Clock 6 — Steampunk by Eric Freitas Steampunk (13 October 2009 - 21 February 2010). The first museum exhibition of Steampunk art. An international show curated by American artist and designer Art Donovan. At the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, England.
"The Museum of the History of Science, Oxford has a polyhedral sundial in the shape of an octagon that has been attributed to Nicolas Kratzer: The sundial made about 1425 for Cardinal Wolsey. The four-sided base has Wolsey's arms, the arms of York Minster, and (on two sides) a cardinal's hat." My take: Some of the dials look decidedly iffy. It would be interesting to see this piece close up.
