Guided Tours

We run guided tours of the Museum for the public at 12:00pm and 2:00pm on Mondays. Tickets are available from our Museum Shop, which is open throughout the day. There is no need to book in advance, although places are limited because of the nature of the venue.

If you would like a private guided tour for a group or school, please contact us for more information. We will be happy to discuss your visit and provide activities that can be tailored to the needs and interests of your group.


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.
