  • It has objects from various parts of the world, very interesting really. Being a small sample of each, in some I was left wanting to see more. I was especially impressed by the totem (I didn't know they could be that big!). The staff is friendly, and the entrance is free.

  • I was trying to cram a lot of things into a short time in Cambridge, so only explored the anthropology gallery, and it was fascinating. There are only a few pieces from each area, but as a previous re...  more »
  • Some good displays of varied exhibits from all over the world. but I did find the local artifacts interesting. No café, but the shop had a few things worth buying.  more »

  • I was fairly intrigued by their collection, however, I did not feel like it was complete yet. I'd love to have had more of those information stands/plates around the museum. On the other hand, the collection was quite extensive and I believe it to be a very interesting and captivating museum. Definitely a must-see when visiting Cambridge!
  • A small enough place but packs a lot in. I heard a guide say they only have 0.05% items on display at any 1 time which is a bit of a shame. They divide sections into different countries and give some background on it and the people/tribes/ethnic groups from there. It's showing its age but there was a sign stating they will be upgrading soon so hopefully it gets a good facelift
  • Very good exhibitions all the family learned about culture and history of Cambridge and different parts of the earth. Kids can do colouring,word sourcing and other fun activities. They really enjoyed. Free entry food and drinks not allowed. I do recall for anyone. Good place to soak up some knowledge of archaeology.
  • Great place. It’s small but lot of collection. Worth a visit
  • Like the other museum in UK, this museum is also free! You can learn the past history and archaeological artefact that are found in UK. It’s both entertaining and educative. My favourite reading is in the Jurassic era. Some of the artefact were donated or founded in the coast of UK and the others came from global donation. I like it!
