Fitzwilliam Museum

Recommended
Designed by Georges Basevi in a monumental neo-Classical style, verging on Victorian Baroque, the university's museum opened its doors to the public in 1843. Its treasures include a number of watercolours by Turner (a gift from John Ruskin in 1861), some of William Blake's best works and an outstanding collection of prints by Rembrandt. The lower galleries display Far Eastern, Near Eastern and Classical antiquities.
