Group Bookings

Organised groups are very welcome to visit the museum. We ask that all groups must contact the Museum in advance to book a time slot.


To ensure that there is sufficient space in the galleries and that enough staff are available to help you, please email the museum at hps-whipple-museum at lists dot cam dot ac dot uk. We would appreciate being contacted at least one week in advance of the visit.

Maximum numbers

Due to space considerations, groups are limited to 25 people at once or one school class per session (plus accompanying adults). Larger parties are required to split into two or more groups and visit the museum separately. Unfortunately we have no waiting areas available, but there are many nearby University museums []that can be visited by groups while waiting for their turn. Please book visits to these museums in advance.

Please note that we have limited toilet facilities. The closest public toilets are located at Lion Yard.

Donations welcome

Although the Whipple Museum does not charge, we would appreciate donations. In order to make an on-line donation, please click here []to go to the Cambridge University Fundraising Campaign website.

A University Museum

Please be aware that the Whipple Museum is part of a working University teaching department. When entering and exiting the Museum please be considerate to staff and students who may be working close by. Please help us by keeping noise and disturbance to a minimum.
