The University of Cambridge holds exceptional museums and collections reflecting Cambridge’s position as one of the world’s leading universities.
The University collections form a research infrastructure that is unique to the Cambridge research environment. In the following pages you can find out more about research at each institution, as well as the under-researched areas of the collections that would provide the ideal focus for new collaborative projects.

The University collections are currently working together through the Research & Collections Programme, a three-year initiative that aims to increase research partnerships and funding by utilising the convening power and significance of Cambridge’s world-class historic and cultural collections. Museum research and practice case studies are available on our Collections in Action site.
