β: This is a Beta release of the Fitzwilliam Museum's potential new website. We want to co-design
our Virtual Museum presence with you. You can return to our current site at any time.
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.
On 29 May 2013, the Fitzwilliam Museum hosted its very own Armoury Extravaganza. This public-facing, interactive event sought to explore the human experience of wearing armour, highlighting the importance of fit, form, function and fashion.
