Tickets are available to book your visit to the University's museums and Botanic Garden. We will continue to update this page with reopening, ticketing and safety information. You can also sign up to our newsletter.

In line with University of Cambridge guidance, from Monday 19th July, the museums strongly encourage visitors to continue to wear face coverings (unless exempt) and maintain social distancing whilst enjoying our indoor spaces. A number of our collections will continue with free ticketing for general admission to ensure safe social distancing. We hope that our visitors support this in an effort to keep each other and our staff safe.

For guidance on visiting Cambridge University Botanic Garden, please check the Garden website prior to your visit.
