Together, the eight University of Cambridge Museums and its Botanic Garden represent the UK's highest concentration of internationally important collections outside of London. With more than five million works of art, artefacts, and specimens, the collections have supported nearly 300 years of investigation into the world around us.

Here at Curating Cambridge our work helps to bring a little bit of that magic from our museums into your homes.

Every online purchase helps support the vital work of the museums, keeping them open and the objects, artwork and natural beauty they contain freely accessible to everyone.
