    A beautiful museum full of Cambridge and Cambridgeshire social history - including a glorious collection of folk magical bits and bobs 🧙‍♀️✨ A little gem in the heart of Cambridge!

    Lovely little museum. I enjoyed the exhibition on samplers and textiles. Also the display from the volunteers about caring for the exhibits. Staff very helpful

    When I visit a city I try to find a local museum that tells the story about the local history. I have mixed feelings about this one. I loved the house, the different rooms, and thinking about all the people who may have spent time in them over the years. The artifacts though seemed to be just a random collection of items from the past 100 years or so that had no connection to Cambridge. It was neat to see them, but I didn’t walk out with any more knowledge about Cambridge than I did when I walked in. The £6 entry fee seemed OK on the way in but seemed a bit high afterwards. What I found even more annoying though while I was walking around were the “certificates of adoption” hanging on some of the items - they indicate that someone “adopted” the item and made a contribution. I doubt the money is being used to upkeep that specific item and they detracted from the item - and seemed to be more of a “look at me” thing.
