I visited two museums in Cambridge, Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences and Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. I’ve been fascinated by fossils for years. I also like archaeology, so I was eager to see them. Both have free entry and are close to each other.
Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences is a small museum comparing to the ones in London. Even so, it has an impressive history that started in 1728. It is the oldest museum in Cambridge.
There are many more interesting exhibits at Sedgwick. I spent a couple of hours looking at almost all of them. The next museum was Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The museum of Archaeology is on three levels and it’s quite small.
On the first floor there is a very interesting collection of artifacts from all around the world. The long pole is from Canada. They were carved with totems of the owner and elements of a supernatural encounter. The poles were raised at festivals and usually were placed next to big and important homes.
Beside the beautiful buildings and the meal at Rainbow cafe, going to see the museums in Cambridge made the day even better.
