The other day I visited the Fitzwilliam Museum, known for its art and antiquities in Cambridge. It’s a beautiful building, though much of the interior is under construction.
I especially enjoyed looking at the French impressionist paintings, and the applied art sections with beautifully crafted tables, and vases.
I also enjoyed the Egyptian and Cypriot collection!
After I finished looking around the museum, I popped into Pembroke College, which is just down the street. It’s free to tour the courtyards and chapel, though again the public is not permitted into any other buildings.
I really liked the Pembroke campus – it seemed very intimate and close, though still very beautiful. It’s the 3rd oldest college in Cambridge – founded in 1347.
