The Fitzwilliam Museum is the principal museum of the University of Cambridge. Its core purpose is to safeguard the collections, to make them accessible for study and enjoyment and to preserve them for future generations.

It is our mission to pursue scholarship and to offer free public access to the collections as well as to education and information services that enhance the visitor experience and inspire learning.

Throughout its history, The Fitzwilliam Museum has been dependent upon the generosity of its supporters.  Like the buildings which house them, the collections have grown thanks to gifts, bequests and grants from external sources, both private and public.

Cambridge’s collections have multiple lives, embracing public and private histories, personal and scientific interest and the past and the present. They illuminate the wider activities, histories and environments of the people who made them and the worlds they represent. We draw upon our collections to conduct pioneering research. By investing in our collections and museums, our ambition is to deepen public understanding of cultures and peoples across the planet.
