Welcome to the Fitzwilliam Museum Learning department pages where you can find out about the inspiring range of learning activities and resources we offer to people of all ages.

The Museum was founded in 1816, 'for the increase of learning', and in the twenty-first century we:

  • welcome everyone to the museum, respecting individual needs and creating a positive ongoing relationship with our cultural spaces
  • enable learning from a wide variety of real objects in a unique environment
  • encourage creative, independent enquiry-based learning
  • share expertise in learning and collections
  • and collaborate with audiences to plan our programme

Schools at the Fitz

During the pandemic we have been hard at work, designing, creating and building new resources for schools to use.

Try our new activities - discover amazing artworks, browse for ideas, watch films about our collection, or book a session with us for your school. All of these are now on a new website that we have made, have a look, tell us what you think.

What will you discover today? Let's find out!
