For today’s #ARUplaces we revisit Cambridge to discover more about its art and culture. Although you may know the Fitzwilliam Museum, which takes pride of place on Trumpington Street, there’s an array of smaller museums and galleries to choose from, too. You’ll find Kettle's Yard has a distinctive collection of 20th-century art displayed in the beautiful former home of curator Jim Ede. Meander along to the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology whose exhibits span almost two million years of human history. The Polar Museum holds a collection relating to polar exploration and science, alongside outstanding examples of Inuit art. Of course, honourable mention must go to our very own Ruskin Gallery, which hosts shows by student and professional artists throughout the year. Cambridge is also home to well-known music venues – including the Corn Exchange and The Junction – as well as the Cambridge Arts Theatre and the ADC Theatre, Britain’s oldest university playhouse. On campus you’ll find the Mumford Theatre with its year-round programme of plays, musicals, comedy, children’s shows and concerts.
