University of Cambridge Museums is a consortium of the eight University Museums and the Cambridge University Botanic Garden, which works in partnership with other Cambridge University collections as well as with museums regionally, nationally and internationally.
The University's collections are a world-class resource for researchers, students and members of the public representing the country’s highest concentration of internationally important collections, all within walking distance of the City Centre.
In April 2012 the University of Cambridge Museums were awarded Major Partner Museum Funding from Arts Council England for 2012 - 15 to support our ambitious Connecting Collections programme. In July 2014 we were delighted to hear that Arts Council England have awarded the University of Cambridge Museums further Major Partner Museum Funding for 2015 - 18.
Our programmes focus on unlocking the University’s collections, and the research activities which underpin them, for a larger and more diverse audience.
