Saturday opening: 75th Anniversary

Visit our new Special Exhibition, which brings together much of Robert S. Whipple's founding donation to the University of Cambridge - a collection formed just as people were beginning to consider the significance of the history of science.

Family activities and party games will run from 1.30pm - 4pm in the Learning Gallery.

Can't make this one? We host at least three Open Saturdays a year, usually during the Festival of Ideas, Science Festival, and Open Cambridge. Keep an eye on our website for more upcoming dates.

Performance: Paul Kindersley

Paul Kindersley and a troupe of performers will perform Ship of Fools, a play written by Kindersley and inspired by a painting by Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516). Bosch’s Ship of Fools depicts a boatload of merrymakers indulging in earthly pleasures while unwittingly sailing towards their doom. The performance will last 30 minutes and will take place amongst Kindersley’s installation of handpainted drapery in the gallery.

FREE, come along.
