Hands-on family fun in Cambridge and beyond

Ah, summer holidays. Long days, ice-lollies and… loads of museum fun! Why not pack more into your holidays this summer and join museums in Cambridge and beyond for some family entertainment and adventure.


Along with the University of Cambridge Museums and the Botanic Garden, other local venues across the County will be presenting a jam-packed programme of drop-in and bookable creative activities, events and trails - all part of the annual Summer at the Museums calendar.


From creating miniature masterpieces at the Fitzwilliam Museum,solving detective mysteries at the Farmland Museum or travelling through the ages on the Burwell Museum Time Travel Bus, this year’s Summer at the Museums calendar is full of events and activities to keep everyone entertained.
We will be providing lots more information about what’s happening over the next few weeks and our handy calendars will be out and about in a museum near you from mid June.

Be one of the first to pick up a FREE calendar at the Castle Hill Open Day  on Saturday 20 June and for a taste of Summer at the Museums fun, join us in the Make and Create tent at the Big Weekend, Saturday 11 July on Parker’s Piece.


Take a look below at what we got up to last year!
