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.

Colour: Art, Science & Power

Are you inspired by our current exhibition Colour: Art, Science & Power? We have a range of books new in to the shop that let you dive deeper into the wonderful world of colour and reflect upon what colour means to you, and to people and communities around the world. Pop into the shop to see the full range or browse our bookshelves, which are constantly being replenished.

Aren't these cheery little hedgehogs just the cutest? Perfect as desk buddies or as ornaments for the mantelpiece, they've been hand carved from soapstone and painted by artisans in Kisii, Kenya. At 3cm tall and 6cm long, they're simply adorable.


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