The Whipple Museum holds an internationally important collection of scientific instruments and models, dating from the Middle Ages to the present.
"A fabulous chocolate box cornucopia of a collection... the Whipple Museum is crammed with fascinating instruments, bizarre models, and wonderful ideas"
Varsity Magazine, October 24th 2008.
On 3rd and 4th July, the Whipple Museum will be open from 11.00am for Open Cambridge.
Please note that the museum will also be closed all day on Monday 7th July (due to the Tour de France) and Thursday 31st July. We will also be closing at 3.30pm on Wednesday 6th August.
