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, which stocks a wide range of products from all eight of the University Museums.

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

Happy Angel keyrings

These charming keyrings are part of the Kenyan tradition of carving Kiisi stones. The stone is soft and varies in colour from white to rose and even grey. Carvers work in small groups with each group specialising in certain carvings. The carvings are then polished and dyed in vibrant colours and beautiful etchings inscribed in them by skilled teams of artisans.
