    Great way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day in Cambridge.
    Loved this museum. The ground floor houses items and artefacts found in the locality over the years. Some items date back thousands of years. Upstairs there are items from all over the world representing local skills and traditions. Its a fascinating place, free to enter and staffed by lovely, friendly and helpful people.

    Museum with Fascinating Art and Artefacts
    We visited the Museum of Archeology and Anthropology, which had been recommended to us as it holds World-class Collections of Art and Artefacts from all over the World. We were fascinated by the many objects ranging from Stone Tools and Ancient Pots to Tribal Sculptures and Paintings by famous Artists. This Museum is well worth a Visit whilst in Cambridge. Admission is free.

    Small but interesting!
    Popped in for a quick look around and pleasantly surprised at the number of interesting exhibits. Particularly taken with a group of European students having a fascinating discussion about race! Great place to while away a couple of hours if you’re in the area.

Plenty of exhibits, especially the various artificers from many cultures around the world. The local archeological finds are interesting. Free to enter.

Went to visit on the 28 December. I called to see if they were open the voicemail said they would be their website said they were open Google said they were open. They were closed! Very disappointed a triumph of education over intelligence. They couldn't even manage a note on the door. Very disappointing.

My children thoroughly enjoyed reading about all the different kinds of artefacts on display, especially on the first floor as they got to learn a bit more about the previous inhabitants on Cambridgeshire.

This is a lovely museum full of interesting artifacts and information. It's not very big so you can see all of it in less than 2 hours but it is a good couple of hours and well worth doing. The shop is very expensive and we baulked at buying a souvenir because of this.

I visited yesterday as a carer with two adults with learning disabilities and I have to say how lovely the lady was in there, explaining all about the totem pole to us. She was both informative and patient as she answered their many questions.
I’d definitely recommend a visit to this, then the geology one a few doors down
