Wonderful museum in the Cambridge city centre. We really enjoyed the Human Touch exhibit and I just love the jewel toned walls of the galleries. It makes the entire experience a little bit extra in the best possible way. This is a place of knowledge and warmth. The collections are well curated and the Main Gallery and rotunda are stunning. I also particularly enjoyed the ceramics collections.
I would highly recommend visiting this place, whilst in Cambridge. We arrived at 15.45, so sadly had to rush our visit. Therefore, I would recommend putting a few hours aside for the museum to allow yourself to leisurely look around and be able to read the interesting facts and information about the pieces. The museum also has a lovely gift shop, cafe and bag lockers, which came in handy.
