Fitzwilliam Museum

The Fitzwilliam Museum  in Cambridge, is a museum full of valuable collections of beautiful paintings from all over the world. It is a hidden gem in Cambridge.

If you are an art lover, this will be a second home to you. I went there the other day and was in awe of how beautiful the museum itself was and the items they have.

The building itself dates back to 1848 and its collection was given to the University of Cambridge in 1816.

It has paintings, furniture and old armour from all over the world. Even if you are not an art lover, its worth a walk through plus the admission is free. They have e-guides available to guide you for your visit.

They also have a cafe inside or if the weather is nice you can sit outside and have a nice cup of coffee.

I will go back again to have a proper walk through but I would say that it takes at least 2 hours to properly visit. I think this is a good place to save for when the weather is not great so you can make the most of the good weather when it is here.

It has been in the news in the past few years. In 2004, a tourist stepped on his shoelace and smashed three rare and valuable Qing dynasty porcelain vases. In 2012 Chinese jade art was stolen from the museum.

All the Best!
