How to find us
Please be aware that the Museum of Zoology is now closed to the public for major refurbishment. We plan to reopen in early 2017.
We are situated in central Cambridge, on the University’s New Museums Site. There is more information on travel and parking.University Museum of Zoology Cambridge
Enter through the archway on Downing Street, opposite Tennis Court Road. You will notice the Finback Whale skeleton hung above the entrance.
We regret that there is no parking available at the museum, but many options exist nearby.
The car parks offer long stay parking, while the on-road pay-and-display options tend to be limited to a stay of 2 hours or less. There are car parks at the Grafton Centre and Park Street, which are both fairly central.
Please note that the multi-storey car parks are not suitable for tall vehicles, but it is possible to drop groups off in Downing Street.
By public transport
Buses run regularly from the railway station into town.
