This museum can take a long long time to get around if looking and reading everything you can find. There are so many interesting artifacts and so much history to explore throughout the museum. The gift shop is also reasonably priced.

Eclectic small museum in Cambridge University with mummies to masterpieces. Think of it as a tiny British Museum. See in an hour or two - very enjoyable and the tour groups seem to be absent.

The Fitzwilliam Museum offers a surprising amount of information for each item on display and the changing exhibitions add dynamism to the permanent collection. Some fine black and red figure Greek vases and 13-14th Century gold-leaf panel paintings are really worth extra time as was...More
