Visit Us

The Museum of Classical Archaeology is one of nine University of Cambridge museums and collections. Why not leave the hustle and bustle of the city centre behind to discover a whole new way of seeing ancient art? Our cast gallery houses over 450 plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculpture, each of which has its own story to tell.

 

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 water (see Food and Drink, below), especially if you are bringing small children.

 

Opening Hours

Tues-Fri:      10am-5pm

Sat:             10am-1pm (Univ. term time only, see below)

Sun:            Closed

Closed on Bank Holidays.

Admission is free.

 

Monday Closure

From Monday 29 April 2019, we have begun closing on Mondays.

We realise this new development will impact on visitor access to our collection, but we hope our visitors will support us in understanding how this closure will allow us to prioritise and facilitate essential collections care.

 

Saturday Openings

We are currently closed on Saturdays. Unfortunately, we are only open on Saturdays during University of Cambridge term time.

 

How to find us

The Museum is located inside the Faculty of Classics in the Sidgwick Site, just off Sidgwick Avenue. We do not have an entrance on the road.

If in doubt, look out for the cast in the entrance to the building.
