  • Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology exhibits

The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology holds world-class collections representing the arts of the world, the history of humanity, and the diversity and resilience of global culture in the present.

The Museum has been a base for teaching and research within the University of Cambridge since 1884. We rely on the generous support of our many friends, donors and volunteers, without whom we could not continue to offer visitors to the Museum the same outstanding experience, or continue to care for and expand our world-class collections of art, artefacts and material culture.

How you can help

Whether larger or small, financial donations received by the Museum are hugely important to the ongoing care of the collections and continued improvement of the exhibition galleries. All the money we receive goes directly towards the core activities of the Museum: education, research and conservation.
