Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Two million years of human history. One million artefacts. Countless astonishing stories.

Welcome Back! We are so happy to be opening again and welcoming visitors through the doors.
Join us by booking your free ticket: HERE
We will be open Tuesday to Saturday 10am–5pm, and Sunday 12pm-5pm.
Entry is free but you will need to pre-book your ticket to visit the museum.
If you would like to visit the shop only, you will not need a ticket but may have to wait a short time as we are covid-safe and allowing only two ‘groups’ in the shop at a time.
Covid-19 update: In line with University of Cambridge guidance, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology requires visitors to continue to wear face coverings (unless exempt) and maintain social distancing. We are also continuing with free ticketing for general admission to ensure safe social distancing. We hope that our visitors support this in an effort to keep each other and our staff and volunteers safe.
