We host a range of museum events in our Cast Gallery.

Maybe you're looking for things to do in Cambridge with the kids, maybe you want to know more about our collection, or maybe you have a special interest in the ancient world. Whatever your interest, you can indulge it with one of our weekend, lunch-time or evening events.
