Getting here

We recommend public transport as the best method to visit the Museum, and as Cambridge is renowned as a bicycle friendly city this method of transport is ideal and we have bicycle parking on site.

The nearest railway station is Cambridge (approx. 20 mins walk), with taxis and frequent buses to the city centre. The U bus from the station stops outside the Museum every day. (Turn left as you exit the station, and cross the road to the bus stops on the far side.)

For more info check the National Rail Enquiries

U bus timetable available from Go Whippet website

The U bus from Eddington to Addenbrooke's Hospital via Cambridge Station stops outside the Museum every day. The bus from Trumpington Park-and-Ride also stops outside the Museum.
