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.

The family science sketch

Choose something in the Museum to draw and we can add your drawing to our 'Wall of Fame' which will be published on our social media after half term. If you are stuck for inspiration, why not have a go at one of our challenge cards?

This event is working in partnership with a local adoption group to celebrate families with adopted children.

Early Years Studio

Early Years Studio is a fun, creative, immersive experience for children aged 0-4. The sessions are designed with early years development in mind. Artists draw upon their expertise as early years facilitators and use the Kettle’s Yard ethos and collection to create sessions where babies, toddlers and their carers can experience and learn together.

Our early years artists take ideas and inspiration from our collection to create new worlds of development and enjoyment for children from 0 – 4 years old.
