The Fitzwilliam is close to the centre of Cambridge and because entry is free it is easy to pop in for a short visits e.g. when you are out shopping! We do this quite regularly and the museum is also widely used by schools in the area as a resource – I accompanied both my son and daughter and their respective classes to see the Greek and Egyptian collections at the museum over the past few years! The building itself is stunning, and there are always children’s activity packs available. We love the museum shop in particular, as there is a lovely range of gifts available. Sometimes we spend longer in the gift shop than in some of the galleries! There are also a range of activities on offer for families throughout the year.
