Another of Cambridge University’s free museums in the centre of the city. There are fossils and dinosaur skeletons galore, all arranged by geological time period making it easy to trace the evolution of the earth through the ages.
There are also stories, maps and exhibits, including an in-depth look at Charles Darwin’s Beagle Voyage around the world, including a glimpse at his collection of rocks and fossils.
For kids, there are activity packs of exhibits that can be rummaged through and trails through the museum.
The museum holds around two million specimens, only a small selection of which are on display, and there is a calendar of events and temporary exhibitions that make the museum well worth a few more visits.
