Book an official introductory tour of the Fitzwilliam Museum’s world-famous collections of art and antiquities.
The Museum is one of Cambridge’s most impressive landmarks and one of the finest regional museums in Europe. The “Fitz” presents world history and art from as far back as 2500 BC to the present day.
Your one-hour guided tour is the perfect introduction to its unique collections, including famous works by Rubens, Constable, Monet and Picasso. Revel in remarkable artefacts from ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, Cyprus and the ancient east. See significant collections of oriental art, illuminated manuscripts, and outstanding collections of applied arts, pottery, porcelain and medieval coins.
“Our tour guide, Catherine, made the museum come alive. She was helpful to my dear elderly mother, who really enjoyed it too as a consequence.”
Tours commence at the Courtyard entrance of the Museum at 14.30 on Saturdays throughout the year (only when the museum is open).
