The Fitzwilliam Museum

The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge has been described as 'one of the greatest art collections in the UK' and was named 'best small museum in Europe' by the Director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Setting aside a few hours to explore the museum should be first on everyone's list of things to do in Cambridge. The Fitzwilliam Museum houses an extensive art collection from a number of countries across Europe and the Near East. Visitors can marvel at the inspiring sculpture, drawings, prints, armour, pottery, paintings and antiquities dating from the 14th century to the present day.
