The display were laid out over three floors. The exhibit focused on objects associated with different people groups from ancient times to recent decades. Some of the display were just amazing but some are associated with demons. The Benin bronze were majestic, it's a shame they were looted from the original owners. The people in ancient times and cultures were truly gifted and the craftsmanship of the display were extremely wonderful. The staff were helpful during the visit.

I have been going here since I was a child as it is amazing. It has the best written information, really really interesting with lots for children and adults. the ground floor is new and not very interesting but upstairs is wonderful. Luckily they havent tried to upgrade upstiars as it is by far the best museum in Cambridge. You could look round in an hour or send the whole day there

Free to get in , the grandchildren all loved it especially our young dinosaur enthusiast. The collection is far bigger than expected, so well worth the visit. Set in a beautiful area snuggled in between college buildings. Take a look, won't be disappointed.

We went to see the Harry Burton Photographic exhibition and although not large, it was well laid out and presented, giving an insight into the use and importance of photographs for the Tutankhamun discovery.

Worth a visit if you are in the slightest interested in Egypt and the pharaoh discoveries.

We found this museum whilst wandering around Cambridge so glad we did, there was so much to see on the different floors with many exhibits. There is also the photographs from the opening of Tutankhamen tomb. Worth going to as also a beautiful building

We ended up here because the nearby geology museum shut for lunch however it was worth the visit. A really interesting look at different cultures.

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. It’s fairly compact and the exhibits are well presented. We visited on a Friday afternoon and were able to see everything quite easily. If you like learning about other countries/cultures you will enjoy your visit.
