We are pleased to announce that the Fitzwilliam Museum online store is now back open for business! The Courtyard Shop may be closed, but via our website you can still pick up your favourite Fitzwilliam treasures, including cards and notelets, beautiful jigsaws, and exhibition merchandise to enjoy at home. All purchases help support the museum and are more appreciated than ever during this difficult period of closure.

We are also very excited to introduce you to our newest range, Fitzwilliam Masterpieces 2020 Edition...

The Fitzwilliam Museum temporarily closed its doors to the public in March, but the museum's superb collection of fine art remains in place... what happens in the lives of these masterpieces while the galleries are empty? How might the subjects of our favourite paintings be entertaining themselves during this most unusual year?

This was the inspiration behind our new range. John Everett Millais' Bridesmaid dons a delicate floral mask to match her silken gown, while The Twins, Kate and Grace Hoare, prepare for an outing with their faithful hound. In Jan van Meyer's portrait of The Daughters of Sir Matthew Decker, the girls play safely and ensure that their little doll also follows social distancing measures. This sympathetically designed range provides a playful perspective on our current lives through the art we know and love.

Come and browse the new range. And during your visit why not explore the rest of our collection, and treat yourself and your loved ones to something special, with each purchase supporting the Museum. We ship within the UK and internationally, and offer free UK shipping on orders of £40 and over.

Thank you for your continued support – we look forward to seeing you when the Museum reopens.
