Things To Do at Home

You don't just have to come into the Museum to make the most of our exciting collection - check out some of these online resources to bring the Cast Gallery home...


Online Resources



AccessArt: Let's Explore Hercules!

This interactive website tells you all about our Farnese Hercules statue. Click through to find out more about what makes the heroic Hercules so famous, about  the original statue, which stood in the Baths of Caracalla at Rome, and even about how a cast is made.


Write like the Ancients

This series of short videos uses artefacts in the Museum of Classical Archaeology and the Fitzwilliam Museum to introduce the different scripts and ways of writing in the ancient world. Learn here not just about the ways in which Latin and Greek were written, but also much earlier types of text like Linear B - a prehistoric way of writing ancient Greek.

Museum of Classical Archaeology, Cambridge

Every cast tells two stories.

One ancient. One modern.

Admission is free.
