Human touch

For the safety of visitors and staff, you must wear a face covering during your visit unless you are exempt; this is in line with government guidelines. We support the Sunflower Lanyards initative. 

We now only accept contactless payments and we encourage our visitors to refrain from touching surfaces unless necessary. 

The Museum is now ticketed for all access. Please book online and if you can, in advance. This will help us to enhance your experience.

If you, your family or anyone you live with displays symptoms associated with C-19, please delay your visit until safe to do so. We will try and accomodate rebooking.

Getting here

We recommend public transport as the best method to visit the Museum, and as Cambridge is renowned as a bicycle friendly city this method of transport is ideal and we have bicycle parking on site.

The nearest railway station is Cambridge (approx. 20 mins walk), with taxis and frequent buses to the city centre. The U bus from the station stops outside the Museum every day. (Turn left as you exit the station, and cross the road to the bus stops on the far side.)
