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.
We are missing welcoming visitors of all ages to learn, create and enjoy themselves in the Museum. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be sharing lots of different ways for you to connect with the collections, be inspired, create, respond and relax.
Look Think Do is a brand new set of activities designed as a starting point for looking, talking and doing together. They have been created with families learning together and teachers planning remote learning in mind, but we hope people of all ages will enjoy the opportunity to spend some time with some of our collection favourites – from ancient Egypt to Impressionist painting.
We will be adding new entries on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays throughout April and May 2020, with extra activities and virtual stories for families with under-5s on the first Saturday of the month.
For young people and adults, particularly those who regularly participate in our Resource, Make, Muse and Zensation programmes, watch this space for more opportunities to get involved in the #VirtualFitz coming soon.
If you usually visit as part of one of our community programmes, we will be in touch.
Don’t forget to share your own creative responses to these activities on using #FitzVirtual.
