Mini Museums Your Story of Cambridgeshire

7 August 2023 - 2 October 2023

Over the last few months, thousands of people across Cambridgeshire have been creating their own Mini Museum celebrating what they love about Cambridge and Cambridgeshire.

From punting on the River Cam, frolicking across Wicken Fen, Sunday lunch at the Robin Hood pub, to playing footie in the local park – people from across the region have created a beautiful collection of miniature museums celebrating that which is most precious about living in Cambridgeshire.

For the first time, these Mini Museums are going on display right here at the Museum of Cambridge, on loan from the people who created them. Visit the exhibition in the newly reopened Attic on the top floor. Come along and the favourite places and memories of the people of Cambridgeshire paired with objects from the Museum’s collection.

We challenge you to think of your favourite place in Cambridge!

Mini Museums: Your Story of Cambridgeshire is a free exhibition at the Museum of Cambridge. Standard entry fees apply. Adults £6, Students or Job Seekers £4.50. Children 16 and under are free, as are Friends of the Museum, Museums Association and Art Fund Members. You can also use Time Credits to visit the Museum.

The exhibition is on from Monday 7th August 2023- Monday 2nd October 2023. The Museum is open seven days a week during the school holidays 10-5 Monday-Saturday and 11-4 on Sundays. We are closed on Tuesdays during term time.
