MAA’s Gala Bank Holiday Weekend

To celebrate being a finalist for the Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year 2013, the University of Cambridge’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is hosting three days of drop-in activities, tours, and demonstrations across the first May Bank Holiday weekend.

It is the 100th year that the Museum has been in their Downing Site home so come and meet some Edwardian archaeologists and anthropologists on the day, and try out a range of family friendly activities including:

Have a go on the full-size replica catapult in the courtyard
Dress up and get your photo take in the Edwardian photo booth
Watch a demonstration of prehistoric butchery using stone tool
Decorate the Museum by making bunting with us
Explore the Cabinet of Curiosities
Learn more about local history on expert-led tours

The Museum, and the activities and demonstrations with artists and craftspeople, will be open on Saturday 4th – Monday 6th May from 10:30am-4:30pm each day.
