Plenty to see and plenty to do for children and adults alike. You can plan multiple visits to see everything as otherwise it’s impossible to take it all in.

Superb array of Old World art from ancient to modern. Medium-sized, near core of Cambridge, accessible, and best of all, free! Stopped by for three hours, but could stay there from opening at 10 to close at 17. Check it out!

We visited for the Degas exhibition which was very good. There were lots of other interesting things to see, we particularly loved the Egyptian exhibits. Free to get in is always a bonus too!
