Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Cambridge

The museum, founded in 1884, has one of the most important collections of its kind in the UK.

The collection spans almost two million years of human history, the oldest object they hold is the 1.8 million year old stone tool from Olduvai Gorge. The museum works with modern-day indigenous communities in many ways, holding innovative exhibitions with contemporary artists using the historic collections. It has  strong collections from the Pacific, including one of the largest collections of objects from the voyages of Captain James Cook and the most important collection of Fijian material outside Fiji itself. Entry is free into the museum.
