So much to see at the Fitzwilliam, with galleries of art and artefacts from many different cultures throughout history — it's like a smaller version of the V&A. I didn't have time to see everything (it would probably take all day!), but will definitely visit...More

Unfortunately most of the areas were closed today. But we enjoyed the remaining sections. Admission is free , can donate £5. My favourite sections were open - porcelain collection& Arthur gallery

I thought the Fitzwilliam a truly great little museum. The British Art galleries were closed when I visited but there was still more than enough to see for me to make a return visit a few days later. There is also a very good cafe...More

This museum is very central and easy to walk to. It has a massive exhibition which is interesting and informative and is free to enter. Well worth a visit.

I came to look at the samplers which were fabulous and well documented. Interesting armory with suits of armor from different periods. Somewhat disappointed in the temporary floral exhibit. There were William Morris articles all over the gift shop but none of his works on...More

Really nice museum although the front desk were not very knowledgeable about whats there at their own museum! All they could do was point to a map.

Nice to see a museum that has free entry (although a donation is suggested). Mainly pottery but the painting that are on display are exquisite; old rather than modern. Classy little gift shop and cafe.
