Museum of Archaelogy & Anthropology  image

The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge holds a world-class collections of art and artefacts from all over the world. Objects ranging from stone tools and pots to sculptures and paintings represent cultures and histories over millennia. Great recent and contemporary works reflect the diversity of peoples worldwide, and the resilience of indigenous cultures confronted by globalisation.

The Museum holds one of the largest collections of objects from the voyages of Captain James Cook, strong collections from Oceania and Ango-Saxon Britain. The objects cover nearly two million years of human history from the earliest stone tools to contemporary life in indigenous communities. A temporary exhibition space also allows us to showcase communities and themes that emerge from the the vast collection of nearly one million objects.
