The Museum of Classical Archaeology is part of the Faculty of Classics within the School of Arts and Humanities in the University of Cambridge. The Museum is governed by a Museum Committee which meets once a term and whose members are appointed by the Faculty Board of Classics and the University General Board.

The Museum is also one of eight accredited University of Cambridge Museums and Collections. Together, these institutions form a partnership: University of Cambridge Museums (UCM). In April 2012 the UCM were awarded Major Partner Museum Funding from Arts Council England for 2012–15 to support our ambitious Connecting Collections programme. In July 2014 we were delighted to hear that Arts Council England have awarded the University of Cambridge Museums further Major Partner Museum Funding for 2015–18.
