Gift Aid

If you are not a Friend of the museum, you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid
  • Standard / Jobseeker/ Student etc.

A clear choice between the Gift Aid prices and the Standard prices at entry will be offered. It’s entirely up to the visitor which ticket they choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10% or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid – an extra 25% – at no extra cost to the visitor.

* Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration, and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for themselves and members of their family.

You must be a UK taxpayer to participate in the Gift Aid scheme. You need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations to charity otherwise you are responsible to pay any difference.

Visitor Safety

We encourage visitors, staff, and volunteers to wear a mask if possible.

If you are feeling unwell or displaying any cold & flu or Covid-19 symptoms, or have tested positive for Covid-19, please stay at home until you have recovered.


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 Qhere’s upcycled bags and accessories, ceramics by Daniela Stief, Scandinavian inspired silver jewellery by Birgitte Bruun and glass coasters made by MPJ Glass.


Our Museum has an accessible ground floor toilet with a baby change area. There are also free period products available for everyone.

Dear Supporter,

We’re sorry to interrupt your scrolling – but we need your help.

We’re a small, independent Museum and we rely on donations from people like you to survive.

If you’re able to, we’d appreciate your support today. Every donation makes a world of difference.
