Museum of Cambridge


Over 300 years of Cambridgeshire history. Discover the fascinating stories of local people.

Explore our wonderful and varied collections displayed in nine room settings including the bar, the kitchen, the fens and folklore room and the playroom. Each room is filled with intriguing objects and curiosities, some dating back to the 1600s.

The Museum of Cambridge (formerly Cambridge & County Folk Museum) is housed in the former White Horse Inn, a uniquely preserved 17th century timber framed building with all the character its history suggests.
