Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology



The museum shop is located just inside the main entrance and is open during normal Museum opening hours: Tuesday - Saturday: 10.00am to 5.00pm and Sunday 12.00 - 5.00pm.

The shop stocks a range of unique and interesting gifts, toys and souvenirs, as well as greetings cards and other stationery. Everything is fair trade and ethically sourced, from the jewellery and scarves to the bags, mugs and bowls – and all inspired by the Museum's collections. You'll also find a range of books and catalogues relating to exhibitions past and present.

Even if you don't have time to visit the Museum itself, it's an ideal place to find unique gifts and cards in the centre of Cambridge.

You may also wish to visit the University of Cambridge Museums shop nearby on King's Parade or the online store Curating Cambridge, supporting the Museums, collections and Botanic Garden of Cambridge.

Several of the Museum's catalogues and other publications are also available to buy online via the University online store.

A selection of art prints of paintings, drawings and posters from the MAA collection are now available to purchase online at Curating Cambridge.
