This museum is fascinating. It has everything for all the family to enjoy. Stunning artwork, some masterpieces to see. Egyptian room is a must and lots of things to marvel at. At the end the coffee shop is a must do to catch your breath. Located by the coffee shop is a small gift shop too.

There are repairs to the exterior at the moment, but visitors should not be put off. The galleries are magnificent and there are world class special exhibitions from time to time. There is also a good armour gallery which may appeal to younger family members.

The Fitzwilliam Museum and art gallery is one of the finest of its kind in Europe and every visitor to Cambridge should go there; there is a good cafe and remarkable collections. We visit frequently.
