This museum/gallery is a gem. We particularly enjoyed the watercolour exhibition but there is a great variety of art and antiquities. The galleries felt spacious, even though there were quite a few visitors when we were there and the exhibits were well labelled. Staff were friendly and helpful. We thoroughly recommend this as a place to visit while in Cambridge.

Lots for everyone to do for people of all ages. Great to pass a few hours and a lovely cafe too. Right in the centre of Cambridge.

There was no time to get bored here! The exhibits were quite diverse, ranging from antique sculptures from all over the world to ceramics, porcelains, fans, armors and weapons, sculptures and of course paintings from a wide variety of styles and ages. A few of the major artists that can be found here are Turner, Monet, Rubens, Canaletto and others... More

I love Turner's. The museum has a great collection. Plus, it houses many other historical and artistic gems. A great way to spend a few hours in Cambridge.

A great range of art, sculpture, pottery and ancient artefacts, there is a great range of things with some interest for everyone. Plus from the buildings façade to the inside rooms, it is a gorgeous place to just wander around. We visited on a Saturday afternoon in peak season and despite it being busy, the extensive number of rooms and... More

Spent the morning looking round, went outside for lunch then back in again to see the exhibition of the most beautiful snuff boxes. Never thought I would say that! They have such a wide variety of exhibits.

Spent a couple of hours here. Variety of paintings/pottery and armoury on display. Granddaughter particularly liked all the suits of armour. Parts of the building facade were outstanding. Free entry and clean toilets, always useful to know about. Quite busy but not overcrowded.

Has a very large collection of artefacts from the ancient world and a huge collection of paintings. Can easily spend three hours plus here to see it all. Free entry, centrally located, it's a great museum that is well worth seeing
