Some of the exhibitions were closed for building works but the rest of the museum had plenty of highlights. The Egyptian exhibits were very good, as was the impressionist section including Cezanne, Monet and Renior paintings. Worth a visit for sure

Great layout and the opportunity to spend as much time or as little as you like. Free, which is nice and never seemed to crowded despite being a weekend. A must stop on any Cambridge visit.

Almost as much as the art displayed, I appreciated the accessibility to it. Well organized, helpful staff to boot. A treasure --- and it doesn't matter if you go for 5 minutes or 5 hours, because there is no entrance fee. Enjoy.
