We stumbled across this Museum walking around a cold and wet Cambridge. We wanted to find somewhere warm to go in and was amazed to find that admission is free. However, once we started looking around the exhibits we found them really interesting especially the...More

Didn't enjoy this. But could see why those with an interest in art and artefacts would. Original works by some grand masters, housed in a fantastic building. But, it did nothing for my kids or me. Its free, with a suggested donation of £5.

A very good collection of art from all over the world. Paintings, pottery, archaeological items from Egypt, Greece etc. There is a little something for everyone.

We sadly had far too short a time to spend here - but by asking we were able to ensure we saw some of the highlights of this extensive and fascinating museum - which really merits at least half (if not whole!) day!

Amazing wide ranging collection of various artefacts, paintings and objects from down the centuries and from various cultures. Given that it is free to enter a donation is well deserved
