University of Cambridge Museums is a consortium of the eight University Museums, which works in partnership with Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

The University's collections are a world-class resource for researchers, students and members of the public representing the country’s highest concentration of internationally important collections, all within walking distance of the City Centre.

In April 2012 the University of Cambridge Museums were awarded Major Partnership Funding from Arts Council England to support its ambitious three-year Connecting Collections programme. The programme focuses on unlocking the University’s collections, and the research activities which underpin them, for a larger and more diverse audience.

Twilight at the Museums 2015

It’s time to make the most of those long winter nights as museums and collections across the city open their doors for after dark fun. With thirteen venues offering an exciting range of drop-in and bookable events throughout the evening, there will be loads for families to see and explore. Why not take part in some torch-lit space exploration at the Whipple Museum; discover a world of deep sea darkness at The Polar Museum; or create some ‘Creatures of Twilight’ at the Museum of Cambridge?

The evening is all about fun and discovery and remember, the more places you visit, the more you will be able to see and do. Pick up a Twilight ‘What’s On’ guide and passport from participating venues to help you plan and record your journey.

So wrap up warm, grab a torch and get ready for adventure!
