Museums and collections

 


The extraordinary collections contained within our eight museums and Botanic Garden can be used to bring all curricular areas to life and inspire learning.

Each of our organisations offer pre-booked visits on a range of themes. All the collections can be used to teach across different subjects and topics. Alternatively, you can combine visits to more than one collection.

In addition, the University of Cambridge Museums have a range of resources and activities on hand for self-led visits; and additional handling objects available to borrow for use within the classroom. Please contact individual organisations for further information on this.

For details on the themes and topics covered, plus information on how to start organising your visit, please select from the options below.
