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.

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.
