The Fitzwilliam Museum has been nominated for the Cambridge ‘Way to Be’ Award 2007, which celebrates the accessibility of particular local businesses and public spaces.

The awards, which were launched in 2004, are designed to promote helpful attitudes to disability in the Cambridge area, and are voted for by Cambridge citizens themselves ‘to appreciate the places which are most helpful’ in their manner and services.

Among the citations was the following: ‘The Museum is so accessible. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the tea and cakes are lovely. I am a disabled person, I love art and this has opened up treasures on my doorstep’.
