Things To Do

If you're looking for things to do in Cambridge, look no further than the Museum of Classical Archaeology. We're a small museum with a friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere, so why not pay us a visit?

We run regular events in our Museum for both families and adults with a special interest in the ancient world. We're part of the vibrant Faculty of Classics, so maybe you'd like to come to a lunchtime talk to find out more about how our research helps us learn more about Greek and Roman culture, history or language? Or perhaps you'd prefer a weekend story-telling or craft activity to keep the kids occupied? Check out our family activities, too, if you need to fill a Cambridge afternoon.

Keep an eye out here for details of our museum tours, run by our curator to help you find your way around the Cast Gallery. And there's no reason to visit us just the once – we host regular temporary exhibitions to keep you coming back to our Museum.

In short, we've got lots of things to do whether you're visiting Cambridge for the first time or you're a local who just lives round the corner.
