Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.
The Hamilton Kerr Institute is a department of the Fitzwilliam Museum. The Institute undertakes the conservation of easel paintings for public and publicly shown collections as well as the Museum. In this environment, the Institute aims to educate painting conservators to the highest standard and to contribute to scientific, technical and art-historical research.
The Institute hosts a number of archives, and carries a continuing programme of inter-disciplinary research, in addition to the conservation services and teaching on offer.
