Museum Tours and Trails

Our museum tours and trails are for you if you don't know where to start in the Cast Gallery and would like a helping hand to help you get started. Our curator, Dr. Susanne Turner, runs regular guided tours of the gallery. Alternatively, if you'd prefer to find your own way round, you could choose instead to follow one our trails. We have a range of museum resources available – just ask at the front desk.

Curator's Tours

Museum tours with our curator last about an hour and are a good way to get to grips with some of the highlights in our collection of Greek and Roman sculpture.

Museum Trails

Our trails encourage you to explore the Museum in new ways, linking together different objects and looking at the collection with different eyes. And why do a trail alone when you can do one together? Trails and activity sheets can be collected from the Kid's Corner. We rotate our trails so there should be something different to try each time you visit!


University of Cambridge Museums Trails

If you're looking for things to do in Cambridge, why visit just one museum when we have nine university museums and collections? Watch this space for interactive museum trails which let you make the most of our inspiring and diverse exhibits.
