  • Small museum easily accessible. Free admission open Sunday afternoon. Interesting exhibits of various epochs and civilizations that give an idea of human evolution. Peaceful atmosphere.

  • There are great things, I came because a friend brought me here and I ended up having fun, the guides explain very well and answer the questions you ask them in a good way, I recommend it.
  • If you have a couple of hours to spare and its raining outside, then this museum should automatically go to the top of your list. Its small but jam packed with artifacts and interesting exhibits. Could do with a bit of modernising/updating (especially the lighting and interior decor) - but I guess they want to keep that quaint look. There is a toilet as well.
  • It would have been nice if the signage had explained more about the individual items, but they were still fascinating to look at.A great place to go to get a quick culture fix.
  • Looked good but we were thwarted each time we tried to visit. On first occasion, 2nd Jan we were told by staff they were closing because it was “freezing”. 3rd Jan still closed, understandably as boiler would need some time to be fixed. We gave it a couple of days but still closed when we came in to Cambridge again on the 5th to read a new, updated sign on the locked door. Funnily enough it refers to a website which already told us it was open!
  • Me, my wife and my four year old daughter came here today. The collection of artefact's was fantastic but also the staff were brilliant. Lots of things for the kids such as colouring and trails etc. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone with a young family. Plus it's free.
