Join us live on University of Cambridge Museums' Facebook page [] for a special curator's tour of our Astronomy and Empire exhibition. Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear Dr Joshua Nall and host Nick Oram discuss the controversial history of science in the British Empire, from eclipse expeditions to prayer-wheels.

Climate Hack

Friday 19th - Sunday 21st January 2018

Over three days, four museums in Cambridge will be handing over control to teams of people to shake up how they share stories about climate change.

From Friday morning to Sunday afternoon, participants will collaborate in multi-disciplinary teams to create a prototype museum installation or experience in one of our collections. Whether it's a 3D interactive, an audio interpretation, an immersive experience or a hands on challenge, the choice is yours! At the end of the weekend the prototypes will be revealed for the public to play with and enjoy.

The museum will be open to the public at different points on the weekend for the public to come and have a sneak peek of what people are getting up to - more details coming soon!
