Shop

Like our Museum, our shop is themed around Cambridge and Cambridgeshire. We stock locally-made gifts and jewellery as well as a wide range of toys, books and souvenirs.

Our Made in Cambridge range includes hand-crafted items such as Boxworth Botanicals‘ range of plant-based skin care products, Hurdy Gurdy‘s glass sculptures, Qhere‘s up-cycled accessories, Frankie and the Sewing Machine‘s lavender pouches and hair bows, The Candle Company Cambridge‘s hand-poured, soy-based scented candles and MPJ Glass‘ coasters, jewellery and decorations.

Cafe

You can now enjoy delicious hot and cold drinks and snacks right here at our lovely museum. We’ve got spaces to sit inside and out, so rain or shine your visit to the Museum will be just that little bit tastier.

Families

Families in all their forms are welcome at the Museum of Cambridge. We have a play area in our Playroom with some toys and games for children to handle. We have a lift to the first and second floors for buggies, as well as baby change facilities in our accessible toilet. There is plenty of space outside in our courtyard to sit and enjoy the sunshine if the weather is fine, and a small seating area inside too.
