We are open

The Museum of Classical Archaeology is one of nine University of Cambridge museums and collections.

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.

 

We are open

Just drop in: no need to book

We are no welcoming group bookings again and have removed our one way system. This is not a return to normal. The safety of our staff, visitors and volunteers remains a priority. We are keeping some measures in place, including providing hand sanitiser at the entrance to the building, keeping screens on the front desk, and encouraging visitors to observe social distancing and wear masks.

 

Opening Hours

Tuesday-Friday:  10am-5pm
Saturday:  2-5pm
Sunday and Monday:  Closed
Bank Holidays:  Closed

 

Saturday Opening

Please note: We are open on Saturdays only during University of Cambridge term time.

We are currently open on Saturdays until Saturday 27 November 2021.

 

Christmas Closure

We will close at 5pm on Friday 17 December 2021 and will reopen at 10am on Wednesday 5th January.

 

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 bottled water, especially if you are bringing small children.

 

 

Your Safe Visit

Please be understanding of others. All visitors are advised to wear a face covering while in our Cast Gallery, unless they are exempt. However, please remember that not all exemptions are visible.

Most importantly, if you are feeling unwell, please stay home.

For more information on the changes we've made to keep everyone safe, please consult our Covid Reopening FAQs.

 

Extra safety measures

All visitors are advised to wear face coverings in our Gallery, except for those who are exempt, and to continue to observe social distancing as far as possible. Our staff will be wearing face coverings, especially while moving around the Gallery and the Classics Faculty building.

You will find hand sanitiser in the foyer as you enter our building, and also at the exit as you leave. We are cleaning touch points in our Gallery every day to keep you safe.

 

 

We're Good to Go

The Museum of Classical Archaeology has been awarded the Visit Britain We're Good to Go Industry Standard mark. This means we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment in place and have a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
