  • 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, artifacts, and material culture.

Visit the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology Museum website.

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.
