As the main museum for the University of Cambridge's consortium of eight establishments, the Fitzwilliam Museum is home to a range of art and antiquities from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Situated on Trumpington Street, the museum was founded in 1816 with the bequest of the library and art collection of the 7th Viscount Fitzwilliam. Departments include Ancient World, Applied Arts, Coins and Medals, Manuscripts and Printed Books, and Paintings, Drawings and Prints, and the museum has earned respect for being among one of only a few in the world to offer such a variety of collections on a single site. Aside from the permanent collections, the museum also offers various events and courses, making it ideal for all the family.
