Welcome to the University of Cambridge Museums and Botanic Garden
In line with University of Cambridge guidance, from Monday 19 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.
Please note, some of our museums have revised opening times, and you may need to book a ticket before visiting.
We recommend checking the individual museums/Garden pages (available via this website's homepage) for the latest information and ticketing links.
We will continue to update this page with reopening and safety information.
