The Whipple Museum is currently closed for essential building repairs.

The Whipple Museum is closed from July 4th 2018 until early 2019 for essential work on our historic building. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our skylights are due to be replaced, secondary glazing added to the Main Gallery window, lighting improved, and we will have a long-overdue overhaul of our flooring. Please check back here for updates or email hps-whipple-museum at lists dot cam dot ac dot uk with any further queries.

To find out more about our collection, please take a look at the Explore [] section of our website. Please also visit our fellow University of Cambridge Museums [].

Learning and Events will continue throughout the closure. For further information, please see our Learning and Events pages.

Making a donation online: the Museum operates on a small budget and relies to a large extent on the generosity of its patrons. If you would like to donate to the Museum please click here [] to go to the Cambridge University Fundraising Campaign website.
