Museums and collections


The University Museums and Collections are all within short walking distance of the City Centre. Explore more than five million works of art, artefacts and specimens in one square mile of Cambridge.

Opening hours vary from museum to museum, especially at Christmas and bank holidays. Please check Opening Times or the museum’s website when planning your visit.

Parking for disabled visitors is available at or near all museums. Other parking is not available at the museums, and city centre car parks can be expensive. We encourage our visitors to make use of Cambridge's Park and Ride facilities.

Access information is available online with further details on individual museum websites.

Refreshments are available at the Fitzwilliam Museum Courtyard Cafe, the Botanic Garden Cafe, and the Kettle's Yard Cafe.

We welcome visits from groups. Please book in advance by contacting the museums and collections directly
