This Easter enjoy the Fitzwilliam Museum’s new exhibition Making a Nation. Also on show for Easter are the exhibitions Fans Unfolded: Conserving the Lennox-Boyd collection, The Gentle Art: Friends and strangers in Whistler’s prints and Enriching Collections: Recent acquisitions of prints and drawings 2009-2019. Visit our Current Exhibitions page for more information about our free shows.
Families can discover our collections through a variety of free resources that are available from both entrances to the Museum. Those with babies (0-2 years) can pick up a play mat containing carefully selected resources that connect with themes and objects in the collection. Little ones (2-6 years) can benefit from our Story Starters - pick up a satchel containing a picture book and activities to explore the galleries. Whilst those with 5-12 year olds can complete games and puzzles to journey around the museum with one of our Fitz Kits, or pick up a themed gallery trail on topics such as colour, Egypt, pictures and Shakespeare. A selection of drawing materials are available to borrow at any time. And don’t forget to look out for Easter themed items amongst our permanent displays, including a lovely rabbit tureen (Gallery 26), and paintings from the Easter story (Galleries 6, 7 & 8).
Plus, seasonal treats in the Café, including hot cross buns from Dovecote Bakery. And a table full of Easter goodies in our Shop.
We hope you enjoy visiting the Museum this Easter.
