Trail: The River Runs through the Museum of Cambridge

25 May - 30 June

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Museum trail, in collaboration with Cambridge Past, Present and Future and the Nature Festival 2024. The Festival runs from the 25th May to the 30th June and the trail will be available during the whole period.

This trail was co-designed by residents of Abbey ward in Cambridge, with new labels highlighting the objects’ importance to the river Cam and our connection to the natural world. Follow the trail though every room of the Museum, answering questions as you go to experience the close tie the people of Cambridge have had with the river for over 400 years.

The trail is part of the River Cam CAN (Climate Action through Nature) project, supported by the National Lottery Communities Fund.



25th May – 30th June 2024



This activity is included in the price of your Museum admission, just ask for a Trail Guide at the front desk to take part.
