Cambridge museums

The University's museums and collections hold many treasures which give an exciting insight
into some of the scholarly activities, both past and present, of the University's academics and students. The University's collections are a world-class resource for researchers, students and members of the public. Here in Cambridge we have the country's highest concentration of internationally important collections outside London. On the same day you could marvel at art, relics and antiquities in the Fitzwilliam Museum, visit the North and South Poles at the Scott Polar Institute, take a look at the original specimens that Darwin collected on his famous trip on The Beagle, gaze upon old masters by artists such as Canaletto, Titian and Cezanne, take in some modern art at Kettle's Yard... and all within walking distance of each other. A number of other University venues are of interest such as the Botanic Gardens with its 40 acres of landscaped gardens and glasshouses. Here you can enjoy the knowledge of one of their expert guides on a relaxing walk through the expansive and beautiful gardens.
