The Polar Museum is currently open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00-16:00. You no longer need to book a time slot to visit.

We are cautiously planning to open the museum with an amber weather warning in place over the next few days. Please check our social media before your visit as we may have to adjust our planned activities or close at short notice if needed.

Information about other museums within the University of Cambridge is available on the University of Cambridge Museums website. Sign up to our newsletter to stay updated about the Polar Museum.
