  • Absolutely amazing museum. If you go to Cambridge you have to visit it, there are no excuses. The building is gorgeous, the staff is super helpful and friendly, the gallery has some really amazing pieces. We spent more than 2 hours walking around and we could have stayed longer. The cafe is also really good as well as the gift shop. Absolutely 10/10. Must visit.
  • Wow! This Museum is exceptional and I have to say that out of all the museums I have visited, this is one of my favourites. Free to enter, the entrance was truly stunning. The museum itself reminds me of the British Museum but it is far less busy and very welcoming. It houses a vast collection of sculptures, objects, paintings, jewellery, textiles, pottery from all over the world and so much more. With so much to see it is difficult to know where to look and the wonderful collections seemed to go on and on. It was a real treat and it still amazes me that it is free. There was a large cafe area and a beautifully presented shop. Outside of the museum there are grounds where you are able to to sit. A truly beautiful place and we absolutely loved it.
