  • Excellent museum, items from all over the world. Would definitely recommend visiting this museum. Covers several floors, packed full of amazing interesting items.  more »
  • It is next to the Sedgwick Museum, and at least it is free. It has very interesting collections of anthropology, but of course you can not compare with the British Museum in London. Worse for a while if you do nothing else visit is very curious.

  • Recently my partner and I had a trip to Cambridge and visited this museum. There are interesting things to see and best of all it is free! Definitely worth dropping by if you're in the area!  more »

  • Really quite excellent, lovely collection, well documented exhibits for the most parts. Some finds presented with little context but listed as so. Lots of artifacts that are difficult to find examples of in other museums anymore. Excellent pre-lunch museum, you can probably get through it in a leisurely fashion in two hours. Gift shop doesn't have much that relates directly to the museum though.
  • nice museum but total mix of exhibitions they should organised it beater by creating single even short term single subject exhibitions
  • I spent a great afternoon here exploring the display. Free entry Not suitable for under 10 Life to all floors No coffee shop
  • I believe, this is the best museum in Cambridge. The first and second floor exhibit a very interesting and well documented collection of artefacts from Asia, Africa, Oceania and America. It's a real delight to spend hours looking at impressive relics and reading about culture and traditions. Definitely my favourite museum in Cambridge and a place I always bring visiting family and friends, and it's free (donations welcome).
  • I think this is actually the best museum in Cambridge. There's all sorts of interesting artifacts from around the globe which demonstrate the history and culture of human beings. Watch out for the Fijian cannibal forks- creepy!
