Set in a beautiful old building in one of the most interesting streets in Cambridge. There are always interesting exhibitions plus existing and well presented pieces, including some must see paintings. Well worth a visit!

If you are in Cambridge you must visit the Fitzwilliam. A great way to spend half a day. A wonderful collection of artefacts from Egyptian to contemporary. Very interesting.

Walk of the busy street into this truly beautiful building housing such an impressive collection. Staff are knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The art works are superb and should you have kids then this is a MUST as they can really turn their school projects into life..

I'm not a very regular visitor of Museums but due to 'being a student at Cambridge' I visited some of them. This museum is really excited - the more, I'm from Belgium and a number of masterpieces we only see here in the books are there 'just on the wall'. Really impressive and worth to visit.

Lovely central museum with free entry. Loved all the ceramic displays in particular. I would say this museum should be on everyone's to do list in Cambridge and it is very central.
