The Fitzwilliam Museum houses world class collections of works of art and antiquities spanning centuries and civilisations.

Highlights include masterpieces of painting from the fourteenth century to the present day, drawings and prints, sculpture, furniture, armour, pottery and glass, oriental art, illuminated manuscripts, coins and medals and antiquities from Egypt, the Ancient Near East, Greece, Rome and Cyprus.
They also have regular minor events for children, mainly during school holidays, such as Tales Of Knights And Empires storytelling sessions where kids can enjoy yarns of mighty rulers, warrior kings and powerful armies! Still free to visit but booking essential: check out their site through our link for the next one.

Pick up a complimentary Fitz Kit which are available for differing age groups in different colour-coded packs free from the entrance desks which contain a selection of interactive games and puzzles to adventure to their experience of the galleries, plus drawing materials are also available to use for kids too. Grown ups get a copy of the answers to the quiz in a sneaky secret envelope so there are no frustrations impending!
You're not permitted to wear a baby backpack in here but you may bring your pushchair. There is a lift to all of the floors to be found near the Courtyard Entrance, the only exception being Balcony Gallery 3 which is reached via a spiral staircase. There's a cafe, loos and baby changing facilities provided too.
