Every cast tells two stories. One ancient. One modern.

The Museum of Classical Archaeology in Cambridge houses one of the largest plaster cast collections in the world. Visit us in our light and airy gallery to explore a world of Greek and Roman sculpture...

 

Summer Temperatures

The Museum has a glass roof and in the summer sun temperatures in the gallery can raise very high. We do all we can to open windows, but please do plan your visit accordingly and perhaps bring bottled water, especially if you are bringing small children.
