Fitzwilliam Museum Reviews
Fitzwilliam museum is well worth a visit. Surprising to view such an eclectic display of historical items. The cafe and shop are also good. more »
The Galleries of Egyptian, Greek and Roman artefacts are mind blowing. And then there is Arts of Korea, Medieval and Renaissance Art and.......etc..There is so much to see. But there are also special ... more »
Absolutely amazing. The exhibits were so well presented and laid out so even a museum newbie like me could find and see everything I wanted. The Egyptian exhibition was especially brilliant. Oh and the building itself is so beautiful. I would 100% recommend any one to go. It is free to get in but they do have a donations box. Great place for a cheap but cultural date
Great nauseam. There is a wide variety of artwork. So if you have specific interests you will probably find one of the gallery's really interesting. The entry is free. They have a nice cafe where you can get something to eat and drink. With a gift shop right beside it.
