The Fitzwilliam Museum

Perhaps one of the most well-regarded university-affiliated museums in the world, the Fitzwilliam Museum at the University of Cambridge contains close to 500,000 different objects ranging from medieval manuscripts to coins from the Roman occupation of Britain. Visitors to the site will find that there are also several excellent online exhibits that will introduce them to the breadth of the collection, ranging from "Medieval Manuscripts: Illuminating the Law" to an exhibit of the ethereal paintings of J.M.W. Turner. For researchers, the museum is currently in the process of creating an online catalogue of their entire collection. Currently, 77,000 items (15% of the museum's total holdings) are available for online record finding. Besides the online exhibits and the catalogue, there is complete information on the museum's educational programs, hours of operation, and upcoming events.
